Help support our Children First Fund


Volunteers play an important role in the lives of the children, youth and families that we serve and have a lasting and positive impact on their future. Family & Children’s Services of Guelph and Wellington County volunteers truly make a difference. They contribute a variety of skills, experience and knowledge. 

Volunteering includes supporting children, youth, and parents/guardians one on one.

How can you make a difference?

Mentors are matched with a child or youth who need extra support and encouragement and benefit from regular one-on-one time.
