'Rotary Club of Mississauga-Malton' (RCMM) is one of 9 highly active Rotary clubs in the City of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Proud to be part of Rotary International, a 1.2 million member worldwide humanitarian organization, with 33,000 Rotary clubs around the world. Rotarians are men and women who volunteer their time to make a difference in our communities and the world, through local and international service projects, fundraising efforts to support local charities, youth programs, and global relief efforts.

Our outreach programs locally focus on Youth and Seniors. To adapt our existing programs to a 'virtual' format (in view of COVID-19 restrictions), we seek to enlist capable dedicated volunteers to coordinate these programs and their transition, in collaboration with the Club's Program Director.

Building on the Club's successful track record of seniors' programs, the ideal candidate will volunteer to develop and implement 'remote', dynamic and effective programming for seniors (see 'Description', above). This is an exciting opportunity to both fill and define a pivotal 'role' in furthering the RCMM's important outreach into the local community.
