After the success of last year’s youth volunteer service program Young Helping Hands for Seniors we are once again planning to match pairs of Blackburn youth who would like to give a helping hand to seniors in our neighbourhood.
Are you a senior in Blackburn Hamlet who could use a hand with light yard work and gardening this spring and early summer? If so, the BCA would like to hear from you! Once we have determined the number of older residents who are interested in this opportunity, we will seek to identify pairs of young people in the Hamlet who would be available to help you out for a few hours at a time. Even if you registered last year, we need you to register again in order to participate.
Are you a young person (12-17 years old) living in Blackburn Hamlet who would like to give older residents in the community a helping hand with light yard work and gardening this spring and summer? If so, the BCA would love to hear from you! We encourage young people to find a friend who would also like to participate so that we are mostly registering pairs of youth who would like to work together as a team. If this is not possible, you should still send an email and we will pair you with another young person for this program. Even if you registered last year, we ask that you register again for this year.
If you are a senior who could benefit from a young helping hand this spring or if you would like to participate in this program as a youth volunteer, you are invited to register before 16 May 2023 by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
