Looking For House Services Volunteers:


What’s in it for you: This is an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the world of family-centered care, to gain a deeper understanding of the issues faced by families with a sick child, and to know that you have made a difference in the lives of the families we serve.


Why we want you: Here at RMHC Ottawa, we are all about making connections. How better to make a connection then to have a world class, Front Desk team to make a stellar first impression? We are looking for you to provide great customer service to our families, staff, guests, visitors, donors and fellow volunteers. Along with supporting our Front Desk with basic operations and duties you will also be assisting our Family Services team with House Tours, room checks and other duties as assigned.


Skills you need: Are you able to be friendly and welcoming? Do you have experience delivering an amazing customer experience that includes being an awesome tour guide for the House? Can you bring along 1-2 years of proven experience in a fast-paced administrative environment while keeping things organized? Are you a great communicator and able to interact with various people ranging from our donors to our guests? Can you work well in an environment that requires confidentiality and respecting boundaries at all times? If you’ve answered YES to any or even all of those questions, this volunteer opportunity is great for you!

Why: We need people who are reliable, responsible and well-mannered. We need to create an environment of support through continuity, consistency and familiarity for our families. This is especially important to the children in our House. They will remember you because of your warmth and friendliness, and they and their parents will look forward to seeing you again.
