Volunteer to Help End Poverty in Toronto 


During a time when we’re all apart and feeling isolated, imagine thousands of Torontonians joining in solidarity to end poverty. What could that look like? Would you join in? It will start small, with each of us doing something, one thing, anything, to positively impact someone’s day, situation, or even their life. GIVE 6IX invites you to do or give 6 things (any 6 things!) in order to help someone struggling in Toronto, “the Six”, right now. You might feel your actions are small, but as more people GIVE 6IX – once everyone gets involved – the impact will grow. That’s when real impactful change happens.
That’s how a movement begins.

Volunteer Toronto, Canada's largest volunteer centre, is proud to partner with Yonge Street Mission to enable the GIVE 6IX initiative, a “do-what-you-can, wherever-you-are” movement to inspire everyone in our city to take action and grow our collective potential to make a difference. However you GIVE 6IX, share what you’re doing on your social media with #GIVE6IX

6IX Ways to Join the Movement as a Volunteer

Search the hundreds of volunteer roles currently in need— remember, applying to multiple roles will increase your chance of being recruited and placed.

Join the COVID-19 Volunteer Response Team to receive ongoing e-blasts with in need volunteer opportunities in support of community response.

Book a 30-minute appointment with a Volunteer Advisor to receive volunteer role recommendations  based on your skills, experience, interests, goals, schedule, and location.

1 in 2 Torontonians are a volunteer—chances are, you already know people making a difference every day. Ask volunteers in your life how they give back and say thanks!

Learn how you can give back to support your community and their needs by attending an upcoming information session hosted by Volunteer Toronto

Already a volunteer? Inspire others to GIVE SIX to the 6ix by sharing your contributions on social media using the hashtags: #GIVE6IX and #WhatsYour6ix


GIVE 6IX is an opportunity to give in a uniquely Toronto way throughout our city and beyond. It’s an invitation for neighbours to help neighbours, and to increase the community of support in the city we love in real, tangible and meaningful ways.
