Volunteers are at the heart of Horizons’ success. Without you, we simply could not achieve all the goals we set out each year. 

Pitch in for a single event or help out on a regular basis. Whatever your schedule, we appreciate your input.

You will learn about other cultures, international cooperation and about the success and challenges of community members in Central America and Mexico. We laugh, we plan, we celebrate, we help.  

Local Volunteers: The Thrift Shop operates on the ground floor of the Horizons office in Cobourg. Thanks to over 50 volunteers, all proceeds go to support our programs! Our fundraising events are another huge contribution from volunteers and provide financial resources going directly to programs. There is also the possibility to do work based on your particular interests and skills, just let us know!

Worldwide Volunteers: In addition to local volunteers, we also connect worldwide with virtual volunteers. Translation, editing, video production, and web consulting are some of the ways our online volunteers contribute. In the past year, we've had over 40 online volunteers from over 12 different countries!
