East Toronto Health Partners are hosting two virtual information sessions on their ETHP Advisory Group and volunteer opportunities.
The ETHP Advisory Group are volunteers who meet monthly over a one-year period to share perspectives as patients, family members/caregivers and community members. The objective is to improve how people access and receive health care in East Toronto. They are also looking for a wider pool of local residents to participate as volunteers in one-time future activities such as workshops, surveys and focus groups. ETHP will accept Advisory Group applications until Monday March 8. Registration for one-time activities is ongoing. Volunteer advisors need to reflect the diverse communities they serve. To apply or sign up, please visit their website before March 8th.
Sessions are: February 23 6pm to 7pm and March 3 12 pm to 1pm. Please see poster below for more info.

TechServeTO – connecting digital-native millennial volunteers with older adults who just need a little bit of technical help to improve their everyday lives. Today, TechServeTO is a federally incorporated non-profit that provides services across Canada to older adults through 1v1 sessions, workshops in partnerships with older adults’ associations, and a set of financial literacy resources. Our mission is: “We want all older adults in Canada to build their digital literacy skills and become confident in using technology.” Although our organization was founded as a COVID-response initiative, we think that our mission to help older adults with digital literacy skills endures for the years to come.
Cyber-Seniors’ mission is to bridge the digital divide and connect generations through technology. It does so through the development and dissemination of resources that enable community organizations to provide tech-training for senior citizens using an intergenerational, youth volunteer model. Youth are provided with lessons and learning activities to train them to act as digital mentors, and senior citizens gain access to effective technology training and intergenerational communities that keep them socially connected and engaged.
