Join Project Sunshine as a College Volunteer

College Volunteers Deliver Critical Support to Children

Project Sunshine Canada college volunteers deliver play and activities to children in need of socialization and human connection to help them cope while they are dealing with medical challenges. Play allows children to learn, explore, and it enables them to heal.

New Volunteer Opportunities during the Pandemic

In March 2020 our in-person volunteer activities were temporarily halted. But we were committed to deliver our mission, so we piloted and launched a new program: TelePlay. TelePlay connects small groups of children with trained volunteers over a healthcare compliant Zoom platform where they play games and activities designed by behavioral health professionals.

About College Volunteers

Project Sunshine Canada has 4 active college chapters nationwide and is currently expanding this program.  Chapters participate in volunteer program activities in the hospital, organize Activity Kit packing events, and fundraise on campus to support Project Sunshine’s mission.

College Chapters engage with Project Sunshine in 3 ways:

  • Provide service opportunities (Activity Kit packing, TelePlay and in-hospital volunteering)
  • Develop leadership (Chapter Leaders, Executive Board, Committees)
  • Raise awareness (Fundraising events, collaboration with other clubs on campus, and national campaigns)
