Description du poste

Living without sight can be challenging and sometimes it’s easier to have a friend help with daily sighted tasks. Our Vision Mate program matches volunteers with people with vision loss to help one-on-one for a couple of hours a week. You’ll help with activities like reading, organizing, running errands or going for walks. Activities are mutually agreed upon, based on your match's needs. Volunteers do not clean, cook, provide personal care or counselling.
