Volunteers are an integral part of Landlord’s Self-Help Centre. Dedicated and community spirited individuals help LSHC operate effectively and efficiently while meeting the needs of our clients. They help us provide value for our members through their donation of time, ideas and skills.

Landlord’s Self-Help Centre regularly recruits volunteers to participate on various committees in an advisory capacity. Serving on a committee provides you with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the organization, learn about the issues we face and the policies that govern our operation. Ideally, volunteers seeking committee work would have skills, knowledge or a strong interest in the work of the various committees.

Board of Directors – The Board is comprised of ten volunteers, some represent our membership and others are skilled professionals who have taken an interest in the affairs of Landlord’s Self-Help Centre. Typically, a targeted recruitment strategy is used in which specific skills sets are identified and posted to the website as a candidate profile together with a job description, Board Application and FAQs.

Students – We occasionally recruit high school students to help with administrative tasks during the March break, summer break and throughout the year. LSHC is a non-profit corporation, therefore the hours spent volunteering at LSHC may be used toward the community service hours Ontario high school students are required to complete prior to graduation.

Special Skills – We are always looking for volunteers with special skills. We have used volunteers to develop our logo, design the format for the Quarterly News; brochures and other printed materials as well as create components of our web site. We are currently seeking a graphic designer to help with several projects.

Outreach and Administrative Tasks – From time to time we recruit volunteers to help with outreach presentations, activities, or to help out in the office with administrative work.
