Community Service Organization Testimonials …

Thank you so much for creating this page for us.

I think this will give us amazing exposure!

Jenny Chhor, Communications Coordinator, L.I.G.H.T - Lead. Inspire. Grow. Hope. Transform
I am grateful for the service you provide. By having a site to advertise volunteer opportunities, I have been fortunate to meet with some wonderful people looking for opportunities to volunteer in our field of work. This service allows agencies to seek out assistance for programs and allows people looking to give back to find place that match what they are looking for.
Julie Nighswander, Founder, Chapter 21, Chapter 21 Day Program
That is very kind. Thank you for this opportunity! Your site is a tremendous resource.
I’m looking forward to exploring its listings and I’m so pleased to be included!
All the best to you, :))

It is great to have a resource in Civic York as a (volunteer) recruitment platform. With busy working schedules it is sometimes difficult to get out into the community, and as much as we try, it is nice to know that our information can be found by individuals seeking volunteer opportunities at their own convenience.

CivicYork has been an amazing partner in helping us start up the Markham Newcomers Network. Their experience and helpfulness has encouraged us and guided us in right directions.

CivicYork is a tremendous resource for local residents to learn about the exciting things happening in our community.

Steve Mendel, Business / Community Liaison and Employment Consultant, Job Skills

Finding mentors in the manufacturing industry is challenging for us. With your help promoting the program at your site, I was able to get two mentors in less than four weeks. An excellent website! I connected to international professionals in the manufactory industry with two local manufacturing engineer managers. Thank you so much for helping us to help newcomers and connecting them with local professionals.
