Hobbies, Sports, Interests and Activities

It has been our experience in one-to-one volunteering, that common interests make good matches. Before trying to find an appropriate assignment for you, we would like to know a little more about your interests and about the way you spend your leisure time. The recipients of service are asked similar questions.

Matching Information and Challenges

Because of the difficulties and challenges in their lives, some of the children and
youth we serve have problems that may also challenge volunteers and others who relate to them.

Interview times

Child Welfare Record Consent Form

Once your application is complete and you submit for review, you will automatically receive a secondary form - Child Welfare Record Consent Form. At Family and Children's Services, we are required by law to use the Child Protection Information Network (CPIN) to conduct records check when a volunteer application is received. This consent will provide us with your permission to conduct our search in relation to your application and it will be done in the CPIN system which includes all Child Welfare Societies in Ontario. If you have any questions about this process, please let us know at volunteerservices@facswaterloo.org. *
