Volunteering at the CPCC
Volunteerism is steeped in the Centre's long and rich history. Since its early days, volunteers have been at the heart of the Centre working alongside staff to strengthen the Centre's capacity to deliver quality programs and services to the community. From those who assist on the front-line to those who work quietly behind the scenes providing leadership and support, our volunteers help to enrich the lives of the families and children we serve.
In 2011, the Board of Directors adopted the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement. In adopting the Code, The Caledon Parent-Child Centre commits to value and support the contribution of volunteers through respectful, meaningful and inclusive engagement.

The Caledon Parent-Child Centre recently held its Annual General Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation event. Along with presenting Length of Service certificates to Lorraine Marks McGrath and Megan Roy O’Brien (5 Years), the Centre also presented 2 volunteer awards in 2 categories this year.
Meredith Taylor (Left, with Shelly Sargent, Manager of Volunteers) who will be stepping down from her long-term role as Chair of the Special Events Committee received the CPCC Spirit Award.
This award recognizes the exceptional contributions of volunteers, like Meredith, who have devoted extensive time and effort to the achievement of the goals of the Caledon Parent-Child Centre, and who embody the spirit and values of the organization.
Meredith was also presented with a Town of Caledon Community and Social Services Volunteer award this past spring.
CPCC Board Chair Megan Roy O'Brien (shown centre, left with CPCC Executive Director Teresa Colasanti and Manager of Volunteers, Shelly Sargent) was recipient of the The Leanne Flood Distinguished Contribution Award.
The Leanne Flood Distinguished Contribution Award may be presented at the discretion of the Executive Director to acknowledge and honour a member of the Board of Directors for his/her years of dedication and loyalty and for providing vision and leadership to the CPCC.
Megan - who is stepping down from the CPCC's Board and will be moving to the East Coast - is a worthy recipient, and we wish her well in her future endeavors.
Pictured above from left to right are: Shelly Sargent (Manager of Community Relations & Volunteers), 2015 award winners Helen Hartsell, Pamela Seidel, Lisa Chin and Teresa Colasanti (Executive Director).
The CPCC would like to thank all our award winners and say a resounding thank you to all of our volunteers. We are proud and honoured to have over 80 volunteers who help our Centre serve the families of our community so well throughout the year!
