New Leaf Link (NeLL) is always searching for volunteers! If you have a few hours to give each week, we want you to meet our group. Come and see if volunteering at NeLL is right for you. You will be joining a diverse and enthusiastic group of people in an inviting rural community.

(NeLL) is a grassroots organization that champions the interests and abilities of (dis)abled participants in Arts, Healthy Living, and Community Participation. NeLL is a friendship project. Our mission is to recognize, extend, and support participants’ special interests in an environment that fosters long-term relationships. The oak leaf logo is an organic metaphor symbolizing community connection.

NeLL Programs depend on VOLUNTEERS to help enrich the lives of disabled participants. A background in education, health and/or the arts is beneficial, but not essential.

NeLL classes are offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9:30 and 2:30 from September through June at the Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church.

There are various VOLUNTEER opportunities at NeLL:

  • Participate and assist in our Education Programming (health, fitness, food preparation, art, photography, dance, drama, etc…)
  • General volunteer opportunities (helping at our Open House and fundraising events; sewing costumes; baking for special events; an extra set of hands to help anytime)
  • Creative Option where you tell us what you can offer in assistance (Are you great with computers? Are you well connected in your community to help raise our profile? Familiar with fundraising?)

As of January 1st, 2019 volunteers require a Police Vulnerable Sector Check.  NeLL will provide volunteers a letter of request to be taken to the Frontenac Police Detachment.  There is no cost for this.

Please consider joining NeLL’s inclusive community of learners today!!
