Established in 1976, the Multicultural History Society of Ontario has a dual mandate as steward of heritage resources and educator. It collects, preserves, and makes available significant, irreplaceable records documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences, and it undertakes educational programming illuminating our histories of migration and ethnicity.

The Society is the creator of the most extensive assemblage in Canada – and one of the largest in North America – of archival materials documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences. Over 70 ethnocultural and Indigenous communities and some 240 municipalities are represented in the MHSO’s archival holdings.

During the last few years, the MHSO has focused its efforts on the creation of a digital archive, the 'anchor' archive in its online repository Discovering Multicultural Canada. The digital archive will include digitized oral history interviews, ethnic newspapers, and historical photographs from the Society’s extensive archival holdings, augmented by contextual materials and reference information.

The MHSO is looking for dedicated individuals who are interested in the experiences of immigrants who came to Ontario both before and after the Second World War and who wish to support the establishment of the digital archive. Although the Society is located in Toronto, individuals living anywhere in the province can volunteer since resources and materials will be made available virtually.

Volunteer Opportunities

• Transcribing oral history interviews
• Transcribing non-English-language oral history interviews (many are in a variety of heritage languages) and translating these transcripts into English
• Editing transcripts
• Annotating transcripts
• Indexing oral history interviews
• Researching and writing biographical notes

Required Skills

We are seeking responsible, organized, enthusiastic individuals who can work well independently.

Time Commitment

Volunteers must be able to commit 4 hours per week towards the project. Since volunteers will be working from home rather than on-site, the exact days and times of volunteering are flexible.

How to Apply

Individuals interested in volunteering should send resumes outlining their skills and experience to the MHSO’s Outreach & Digital Archive Officer, Cassandra Tavukciyan, at cassandra.tavukciyan@mhso.ca .Providing an indication of what the individual can contribute to the project and the MHSO will also be helpful.

The Canadian Centre for Men and Families is a hub for the health and well-being of boys, men, fathers and families. We are looking for a Male Volunteer Facilitator to help us run a program for boys.
We are spearheading a program that will allow boys aged 8-16 years to explore their concepts and questions about masculinity in today’s society. The key point of this program will be engaging conversations with the boys, and it is crucial that a level of trust be achieved between the group members and their facilitator.
The facilitator will need to craft and maintain a careful balance between guiding and directing discussion, and following the interests and concerns of the boys in conversations about difficult topics of masculine social stigma, positive masculinity, and the creation of solid self-image in the boys.
Program Description
This program is to help promote positive views of masculinity, it has a structured/unstructured approach, which allows for the boys to control the conversation into their areas of need for that moment. The whole idea of this program is to offer young boys a place to just come and be boys, create friendships without the fear of judgements and restrictions. To share their views on life and to ask questions.
Understanding that young boys possess a tremendous amount of unused daily energy, it will be important to alternate conversation periods with physical activities.
The goal of the program is to mitigate the general social negativity that young boys are facing in simply being boys. In the last few years, increasingly radical social movements have been having a personality crushing impact on young boys, to the extent that many young boys are feeling that being a boy is actually a bad thing. We need to let them know that it is a great thing to be a BOY, a young man, a man and wanting to explore both the traditional and contemporary values of masculinity and maleness.
Main tasks/Responsibilities
• Support boys (youth) experiencing a broad range of social and personal stressors
• Communicate program information
• Confidentially lead and facilitate group conversations
• Facilitate an energetic and fun environment, being spontaneous and creative in order to achieve maximum participation from the participants.
• Implement, oversee and monitor ongoing mentor/mentee matching.
• Foster positive peer-bonding
• Problem solving skills
• Self-motivated/proactive
• Ability to think outside the box
• Take daily attendance
• Compassionate
• Understanding
• Great listening skills
• Self-confidence and self-assurance as a leader

Requirements
• Male
• Some education in a field of working with youth or psychology
• Valid First Aid and CPR are required.
• A current Vulnerable Sector Screening (Criminal Reference Check)
• Able to commit to 2 hours per week

Le Bureau du protocole recrute actuellement des bénévoles pour la fête annuelle « Friandises ou bêtises avec le maire » qui aura lieu le samedi 26 octobre 2019, de 17 h à 20 h, à l’hôtel de ville d’Ottawa.

Cette fête permet à toutes et à tous de s’amuser en toute sécurité à l’occasion d’Halloween et offre aux familles locales une merveilleuse occasion d’aider d’autres familles en faisant don d’articles et d’aliments essentiels au Comptoir pour bébés de la Banque d’alimentation d’Ottawa. Les activités débuteront dans l’édifice historique hanté où tout le monde pourra participer à une chasse aux friandises en compagnie du maire et croiser de nombreux personnages costumés. La fête se poursuivra dans la cour où les familles pourront décorer des citrouilles miniatures et visiter le repaire maléfique des sorcières, avant de se rendre à l’intérieur de l’hôtel de ville où du chocolat chaud et des friandises seront servis au Café du marais maudit de la Place-Jean-Pigott. Des films effrayants seront également projetés au cinéma spectraculaire de la salle Andrew-S.-Haydon.

Nous aimerions que les bénévoles se présentent au plus tard à 15 h 30 à la salle de contrôle des festivals, située au 1er étage de l’hôtel de ville, au 100 avenue Laurier Ouest. Ils pourront alors s’inscrire, assister à une séance d’information sur le déroulement de l’activité et se restaurer avant de se rendre à leur poste. Un repas léger sera servi aux bénévoles avant la fête (une option végétarienne sera offerte). Les bénévoles doivent être disposés à travailler jusqu’à 20 h environ puisque nous aurons besoin d’aide après la fête pour tout nettoyer.

Tous les bénévoles de moins de 18 ans doivent obtenir l’autorisation écrite de leurs parents ou de leur tuteur. Vous pouvez télécharger en ligne le formulaire de consentement des parents ou du tuteur.

Conformément à la loi ontarienne, toutes les personnes qui désirent faire du bénévolat lors d’un événement doivent avoir suivi une formation sur la LAPHO. Si vous n’avez pas encore suivi cette formation, vous pouvez le faire en ligne : https://ottawa.ca/fr/formation-sur-laccessibilite

The Homework Club Program offers homework and reading support for children and youth across Canada.

Based on your own competencies, you may also help them develop skills in mathematics, science, and French.

Volunteering with the Homework Club Program is an excellent way to gain experience in early childhood education or literacy tutoring! It is also an ideal environment in which to contribute meaningfully to your community. We require no prior teaching experience and provide you with all of the training and materials you need. Just bring your communication skills, patience, enthusiasm and love of learning!

The Homework Club program at Carlingwood Library will launch in October 2019. Sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings. Volunteers are encouraged to participate weekly, but scheduling is flexible and can accommodate your availabilities. Note also that our other Homework Club across the city are always looking for volunteers!
