Some of the organizations are asking for support specifically for the COVID-19 pandemic, so please note that some positions allow you to work from home, while others may need in-person support.

Chess Club Volunteer Opportunity

Chess Club is returning to in-person play this fall at Dufferin Clark (Tuesday evenings), Maple (Thursday evenings), and Vellore Village (Saturday afternoons) branches. Teen Chess Club volunteers work with participating children to instruct in playing chess or improving their game. Our Chess Club volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Chess.

Chess Club runs in association with local non-profit Chess in the Library and volunteers apply through them.
