Volunteer and Make a Difference
Volunteering for Yee Hong is a fulfilling and rewarding experience. Our volunteers embrace the seven values of Yee Hong: Respect, Compassion, Commitment, Excellence, Teamwork, Integrity and Accountability. Whether conducting programs, visiting seniors, delivering meals, transporting seniors or doing office work, their service helps our seniors enjoy a more fulfilling life. With the contribution of over 1,000 service volunteers every year, Yee Hong is proud to be a world leader in providing quality services for seniors, from the healthy to the very frail.
As a volunteer, you will find an opportunity that best matches your interests and skills. To begin, submit a completed Volunteer Application Form, Confidentiality Form and where applicable, the Tuberculosis Test Form, to the Volunteer Coordinator in the geographical area you prefer to work in. Some assignments also require a vulnerable sector screening. A commitment of at least three months is required from all volunteers, except students volunteering in the summer. Some assignments such as Friendly Visiting would require a longer commitment.
We will arrange a placement for you based on your expressed interests, learning objectives and time availability. Your assigned department will give you a workplace orientation and support you throughout your time at Yee Hong.
All service volunteers are centrally managed by the Volunteer and Advocacy Department of the Social Services Division. In addition to recruiting, assessing and placing volunteers in various departments, the department coordinates training and keeps track of volunteer contributions.
To apply to become a volunteer at Yee Hong, please fill out the registration form and bring it to one of the pre-placement orientation sessions listed on the first page of the form.
