"Being at Sunrise, spending time there, has been some of the best memories I've had, maybe ever. Seeing the members' joy when doing something they like or having a large-scale event is worth everything to me. A great example is Wabikon, everyone is radiating joy during their time there and it's an amazing feeling and an honour to get to experience that with them."


Volunteers fuel SYG Recreation programs with their energy, enthusiasm and new ideas, and are encouraged to take as much responsibility as they would like.

You can start Volunteering with us the day you graduate from Grade 8. This is a great way to achieve community hours, develop skills and experience and have fun!

If you are over the age of 18 we require a vulnerable sector police check.

What is especially unique is that there is no special experience required. If you are sincere, fun, loving, accepting, and reliable, then you have what it takes to be a Sunrise Volunteer. There is no minimum attendance requirement.  Just let us know what you are ready and able to do. It’s that easy!

Placement Opportunities

Sunrise accepts and supports placement students year-round.

We accept students from a variety of programs such as Child and Youth Care, Social Service Worker, Development Service Worker and Recreation and Leisure students.

Our students continue to grow throughout their whole placement at Sunrise with the support of our educated and trained staff who come from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds.

Our students help support our members through various ways in our Day Program or Recreation Program while learning new skills themselves.

If you are interested in a student placement at Sunrise contact Amber McKinley at programs@sunriseyouthgroup.ca
