Volunteer Information

Sarnia-Lambton Children's Aid Society works alongside families and communities to help children and youth be safer and live their lives well.


Over 50 Volunteers help our Agency provide service to children, youth and families each year. Volunteers assist our agency in implementing personalized services that support families caring for children. Volunteers receive direction and support from team members at the agency and in the community, who are also working to support children in families.
