What is the Easter Seals Ontario SEAC Volunteer Program?
Easter Seals Ontario is eligible to nominate representatives to school board SEACs who meet the criteria to be a SEAC Member. Ideally, Easter Seals will nominate two people for each school board, one of whom will be the main representative and the other will be the alternate representative. The alternate is encouraged to attend all meetings, but will only be the voting member in the absence of the main representative.
How can I get involved in the Easter Seals Ontario SEAC Volunteer Program?
Easter Seals volunteers are required to complete an application form, provide two references and sign a Volunteer Code of Conduct. After review of the application and speaking to the references, the volunteer will be nominated to the school board SEAC. The decision on the appointment of SEAC members is made by the school board Trustees.
