Volunteer Corner 

by Madison Wickens, Recreation and Volunteer Coordinator

South East Grey Community Health Centre thanks all our dedicated volunteers for the hours they have spent helping out with our programs and services. You can read about our available volunteer opportunities and fun facts about volunteering. We will also showcase our 'Volunteer of the Month' right here!

Volunteer of the Month

South East Grey Community Health Centre would like to recognize our volunteer Carole Henderson. Carole is a new volunteer at the Health Centre, and works out of the Dundalk Location supporting Community Café, and does all of our grocery shopping. Carole’s enthusiasm, energy and creative ideas are why we are so happy to have her apart of our team. We are grateful for everything you have done for the Community Health Centre. Thank you Carole.

A Little About our Recreation and Volunteer Coordinator

Madison Wickens graduated the Recreation and Leisure Services program at Conestoga College in May and was hired at the SEGCHC as a Recreation and Volunteer Coordinator. During her two years at school she completed three placements; Tim Hortons Camp Counsellor, Langs Community Health Centre Youth Worker, and CNIB Special Event/Program Support. Madison was a summer student at the CHC in 2017, where she facilitated Summer Days of Play, organized Longest Day of Play, took on the task of the Client Satisfaction Surveys and 2018 Recreation and Leisure Guide. Madison is currently working on completing her Volunteer Management Course at Conestoga College online.

Madison’s Personal Philosophy Statement

I personally believe that each volunteer has their own individual skills and passions which make them unique. It is my desire as a Volunteer Coordinator to support volunteers in finding volunteer position(s) that will allow the opportunity to showcase and grow their skills. Without volunteers, communities and non-profit organizations would not be as successful. I believe volunteers should come with an open mind, positive attitude and the willingness to follow through on commitments.
