Become a Volunteer


The volunteer positions at The Erika Legacy Foundation provide opportunities to develop new skills and work with a diverse group of people within a mental health setting, in both interactive roles as well as behind the scenes in support or administrative roles. With a minimum commitment of one month, we offer volunteer opportunities for adults and youth 16 years of age or older, that are both flexible and rewarding. Please note that we do also offer summer volunteer placements of two or four months for high school, university and college students.

In recognition of the value of your time, our commitment to you in return is to ensure that your volunteer experience is a positive one! Chris Maksylewicz, our Executive, will meet with you to explore your interests and find the best volunteer placement possible to fit your goals.
