Journey Thrift is a non-profit secondhand store located in Brampton's downtown at 24 Nelson St E. Our organization supports The Journey Neighbourhood Centre, which serves the Ardglen and Orenda neighbourhoods of Brampton. By accepting and selling gently-used goods, we generate income that contributes directly to the development and implmentation of the services provided by The Journey Neighbourhood Centre.
Journey Thrift is committed to being a radically inclusive community space and welcomes volunteer applicants of all abilities, backgrounds, and identities. We are actively working to build a community of informed, diverse, and accepting members who practice inclusion every day and invite you to become a part of our team!
Journey Thrift has a two different roles available for volunteers and currently has a need in all areas of the store operations:
We ask that our volunteers commit to one or two weekly morning or afternoon shifts for a minimum of 4-6 months. Each shift lasts 3-4 hours and our volunteers are always scheduled for the same shift each week. Our store is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-5pm, with Monday hours being introduced in September 2022.
Journey Thrift does accept a limited number of secondary school students seeking community service hours, however, we are currently only looking for applicants who are at least 18 years of age.
