VOLUNTEER POSITION:  Healthy Child Screening

Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services improves health outcomes for the most vulnerable immigrants, refugees, and their communities. We do this by facilitating access to services and addressing system inequities. The Centre envisions a future in which Toronto’s diverse communities achieve Health with Dignity.

We need volunteers to provide support with pre-registration and coordination at our upcoming Healthy Child Screening events. Every year, Access Alliance takes part in Healthy Child Screening. These events aim to enhance healthy early childhood development as children prepare to enter the school system.
