About the Team

The Community Health Promotion team works with clients individually to address barriers to access and overall health including income, housing, social supports, employment and access to nutritious, affordable foods.

The team also provides a range of group programs promoting individual capacity building including the Cafe Connect, the Volunteer Program, and Youth Health Connect.

The team works with community partners on initiatives that build community capacity and resilience.

Volunteer Services Program

The Barrie Community Centre (BCHC) offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. A BCHC volunteer is a person who is unpaid and participates in a service, program, or sits on a committee of the Centre. Volunteers are recognized by BCHC staff for their unique skill set and knowledge and are placed in volunteer positions accordingly. Each volunteer has a current job description which outlines their role, responsibilities and which staff person they report to. BCHC program staff work closely with volunteers to help them develop new skills and improve their health and well being. 


Volunteers’ rights and responsibilities

Volunteers’ working in programs and services at the Centre are part of the “Health Team”.
