We need your help at Lotus Centre!

Volunteers are essential to our work bringing music into the lives of people with special needs. There are many volunteer opportunities with varying levels of commitment.

Working with our students is so meaningful to our volunteers, and so valuable to our organization. Volunteers are needed in the following positions:


Assisting with our PA day, March Break and summer camps


Assisting in our Sunday afternoon respite program


Administrative assistance


Vounteering At Special Events

Here’s what one of our volunteers had to say about their experience:

“I had an exceptional time volunteering at Lotus Centre. The staff provided me with vital information that I will be able to use in the future. They were always willing to share tips, tricks and special things that they have learned from working with kids with exceptionalities and disabilities. They also gave me opportunities to learn and practice skills with the children and were always there to help if I was feeling uncomfortable. I feel like during my volunteer experience, I gained new friends and skills that I will always have with me from now on.”

Please contact Marianne Keuleman, for more information about volunteering with Lotus Centre.
