Have you been brewing over volunteering but aren’t sure where to start?

At  Craft Your Change, an event hosted by Volunteer Toronto, you’ll meet over 20 non-profits and get to create your perfect volunteer role, while enjoying craft beer. You might be passionate about youth, human rights, the arts, or the environment... you’ll find a whole host of great causes interested in having you join them.

Tickets are $10 and include your first drink.


If you are interested in volunteering and need some help, please contact us! We can answer all your questions and suggest volunteer opportunities that are right for you.

You can either:

  • Book an appointment to have a one-on-one session to speak to a Referral Counsellor where they provide suggestions, tips and information on volunteering in Toronto. Please note that a Referral Counsellor will not match you with a volunteer opportunity, but will instead provide suggestions of positions for you to apply for. You can arrange for a Counsellor to call you, or you can schedule an appointment where you visit our office to speak with a Counsellor

  • Give us a call during business hours, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm at 416 961 6888
