Sun Youth volunteers needed – Volunteer of all ages contribute to Sun Youth in many ways. From elementary school students to retired seniors, with a wide variety of people in between, all volunteers are an essential part of the organization and they have been since its founding in 1954. 65 years ago, 13 year-old Sid Stevens and 9 year-old Earl De La Perralle created what would become Sun Youth and managed to get their friends involved as volunteers. Over the years, with the invaluable contribution of countless volunteers, the founders were able to take the organization from a small sports and recreation club to one of the best-known charities in Montreal.

Today, Sun Youth can count on the support of over 1,800 volunteers every year, performing over 176,000 hours of volunteer work annually – the equivalent of 80 full-time jobs. Some of them have special needs and are on governmental programs that allow them to gain work experience and develop skills which will eventually lead them to the work market.
