The Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty Volunteer Association, Heritage Gift Shop
3836 Main Street, Jordan Village, Jordan, Ontario, Canada L0R 1S0
Volunteers in our shop work in pairs (so if you like, bring a friend and volunteer together!). Volunteers open or close the shop (depending on your preference and availability), provide customer service, operate the cash register and point-of-sale machine, sell fudge and preserves from our fudge counter, and do very limited general maintenance of the store (tidy shelves and racks and food areas). Shifts are 3.5 hours long--morning shifts are from 10am to 1:30pm; afternoon shifts are from 1:30pm to 5pm. We are open 7 days a week, so you can choose a time that works with your schedule. We invite volunteers to try out the volunteering experience in our store before deciding whether they would like to continue volunteering with us. Students who seek community service hours are also welcome to work with us on Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons, managing customer service in our Preserves and Fudge counter areas.

Multicultural History Society of Ontario
Established in 1976, the Multicultural History Society of Ontario has a dual mandate as steward of heritage resources and educator. It collects, preserves, and makes available significant, irreplaceable records documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences, and it undertakes educational programming illuminating our histories of migration and ethnicity.  
 
The Society is the creator of the most extensive assemblage in Canada – and one of the largest in North America – of archival materials documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences. Over 70 ethnocultural and Indigenous communities and some 240 municipalities are represented in the MHSO’s archival holdings.  
 
During the last few years, the MHSO has focused its efforts on the creation of an online digital archive, Discovering Multicultural Canada. The digital archive will include digitized oral history interviews, ethnic newspapers, and historical photographs from the Society’s extensive archival holdings, augmented by contextual materials and reference information. 
 
The MHSO is looking for dedicated individuals who are interested in the experiences of immigrants who came to Ontario both before and after the Second World War and who wish to support the establishment of the digital archive. Although the Society is located in Toronto, individuals living anywhere in the province can volunteer since resources and materials will be made available virtually.  
 
Volunteer Opportunities 
 
• Transcribing oral history interviews  
• Transcribing non-English-language oral history interviews (many are in a variety of heritage languages) and translating these transcripts into English  
• Editing transcripts 
• Annotating transcripts 
• Indexing oral history interviews  
• Researching and writing biographical notes 
 
Required Skills 
 
We are seeking responsible, organized, enthusiastic individuals who can work well independently.  
 
Time Commitment 
 
Volunteers must be able to commit 4 hours per week towards the project. Since volunteers will be working from home rather than on-site, the exact days and times of volunteering are flexible. 
 
How to Apply 
 
Individuals interested in volunteering should send resumes outlining their skills and experience to the MHSO’s Historian and Outreach Officer, Daniel Panneton, at daniel.panneton@mhso.ca . Providing an indication of what the individual can contribute to the project and the MHSO will also be helpful.
