Take our volunteer challenge 

It's a great time to do something for your community. More than ever, the need is great. Volunteer hours you would have given to Sound of Music this year can be instead offered to Burlington organizations. Lend a hand and we’ll share opportunities to make a lasting contribution in the city.

Accessible Customer Service Training Guide

SOM Volunteer Information Guide



ALL of our Volunteers are required to receive mandatory training in “Accessible Customer Service Training”. If you have not received any training through your place of employment or another organization please take the time to read our SOM “Accessible Customer Service Guide”, Once you have completed reading the guide (it takes approx. 20 minutes to read), your training is complete and we will be asking you for your signature registering your compliance in our book when you sign in for your first shift.

“The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 – Ontario regulation 429/07, Accessibility Standards for Customer Service became law in 2005 and is the first of its kind in Canada. The goal of the act is to make Ontario accessible for people with disabilities by 2025. Ontario is developing mandatory, province-wide standards to achieve this goal and to improve accessibility.” For more information regarding the “Accessible Customer Service Training” please go to AccessON.
