The Mennonite New Life Centre seeks to be a place of welcome, friendship and community, where newcomers and neighbours gather to support each other, learn from each other, and take action together for a more just and compassionate society.

Volunteers play an important role in building this community of mutual support, reciprocal learning and collective action. They bring compassion and solidarity, knowledge and skills, ideas and enthusiasm to the activities and work of the New Life Centre.

We seek to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities: opportunities that honour the ideas and skills of the volunteer, while responding to the needs of the community and the mission of the New Life Centre. Volunteering at the New Life Centre offers you the opportunity to:

  • meet new people and build community connections
  • improve language and communication skills
  • develop new skills and explore new career paths
  • gain Canadian experience and references

Volunteers work with us in many kinds of roles, from reception and interpretation to community organizing and group facilitation. For more information about volunteering at the New Life Centre, please see our volunteer opportunities, or contact Please write Volunteer in subject line.
