Volunteer with CLC

Volunteer

We know that the illness impacts not just the person who is sick, but their entire family. Chai Lifeline Canada services include support for siblings, parents and children. 

There are a number of ways to be involved with Chai Lifeline and give back to our community!

Have the unique opportunity to be matched one-on-one with a child suffering from illness, their sibling, or a child of a parent who is unwell or has passed. Chai Big Siblings spend an average of one hour a week with their little siblings, taking them on special outings or hanging out with them in their homes.
