Post secondary students
We have different application intake processes for post-secondary students depending on their expected length of stay in Kingston.
For those who live in Kingston on a year-round basis and/or can make at least a 12 month commitment, we accept applications anytime.
If you are only here for the fall & winter terms, we set application deadlines in April and September.
While our minimum expected commitment is 6 months, we do recruit students for the spring/summer terms who can commit from the beginning of May to the end of August.
Additional Interviews to be held in September
In order to make our intake for the fall/winter term more efficient, we interviewed a number of applicants in April 2013 to give them the spring/summer to submit the required documents.
We still have about 25 to 30 additional vacancies that we will be interviewing for in September. The application deadline is September 13, 2013 at 3:30pm.
Please refer to the steps on our Become a volunteer
page for more details on the actual application process.
We will contact all applicants, regardless of whether we book an interview or not, to give details on next steps. If we have a higher number of applicants compared to vacancies, priority is given to those with previous hospital/nursing home/health care experience and is also based on expected length of stay in Kingston.
Please note it can take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks following an interview to be placed depending on how quickly the police records check, immunization and TB tests are submitted. We cannot ask for this information prior to holding an interview or making an offer of a volunteer placement although it is usually easier to collect this documentation from your home town.
Late applications and partial applications received at the time of the deadline will be filed for one year for possible future consideration.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact the Volunteer Services office at 613-548-2359 Monday-Friday 8am-4pm or email us at email@example.com.
