Come volunteer with us!

We encourage members of our communities to join us, as volunteers, to support our work with children, youth, and families who cross paths with our Agency. At the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto (CAST), we turn to our dedicated volunteers to support us in upholding our mandate to build “a city where children are safe, families are strong, and communities are supported.”

We’re currently accepting applications for the following roles:
