YUBSA’s success is reliant upon our supporters. There a lot of ways you can get involved and join us, whether it’s signing up for our electronic monthly newsletter or volunteering for our events.

We’re highly grateful for the support of all our volunteers. Most of our volunteer positions take place on York Campus and surrounding Jane and Finch area, centering around administrative help in our office and at our fundraising and awareness events.

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to apply for the position and will go through an interview process to see if your abilities are suitable for the volunteer position available at that time.

Looking for a more flexible volunteer opportunity?

Events that are independently organized by our supporters are a great way to help YUBSA’s mission, while doing it on a schedule that suits your busy lifestyle.
