• Kent Street Activity Centre is looking for volunteers to assist in a few different capacities beginning in September. Computer instructors are needed to teach entry-level classes to older adults using Windows 10.

A volunteer baker is also needed in the Kent Street coffee shop on Monday mornings. If you have some baking experience and would like to join an amazing team, please contact the Centre.
