Volunteer with Story Planet!

Our volunteers are an important force at Story Planet. We could not run any of our programming without you!

To become a Story Planet volunteer, you must be able to commit to:

  • Volunteering 3 hours per week between 8am – 3pm, Monday – Friday (our workshops take place during school hours, and will be scheduled in advance, so you might not end up volunteering every week)
  • OR volunteering 3 hours every week in our after school programming (runs 3 – 6pm)
  • Travelling to various schools in the GTA where we conduct workshops
  • Completing a vulnerable sector police check (this will be done through Story Planet, and costs $20)
  • Attending a volunteer orientation and training session

*Story Planet also hosts fundraisers and events, where we happily welcome and value volunteer help. These events usually occur on evenings or weekends, but do not take place regularly. Our primary need for volunteers is in our in-school workshops and after-school programming.

To register as a volunteer, fill out the volunteer application form below and check back in regularly for volunteer updates, events, and upcoming orientation sessions.

Please free to send any questions to our very friendly volunteer coordinator at volunteer@storyplanet.ca

By signing below, I acknowledge that I also understand that Story Planet appreciates me and my enthusiasm, but I also acknowledge that Story Planet is not obligated to appoint me to a volunteer position.
