Welcome to DVI’s new Volunteer Coordinator

Galya Zaig

Galya Zaig has spent her entire life in Toronto before making Aliyah two years ago with her youngest daughter. She has built a distinguished career in the non-profit sector, serving as a Program Director, Teacher, and Employment Counsellor. With extensive experience working with individuals with special needs, their families, and supporting organizations, one of her proudest achievements was founding a self-advocacy group.

Welcome to DVI’s new Volunteer Coordinator Galya Zaig. Galya is passionate about problem-solving and helping people and organizations achieve their highest potential. Outside of work, she enjoys cooking and baking, often hosting lone soldiers and people from all walks of life for Shabbat dinners. In her free time, she can be found at the shuk, organizing Jewish learning classes and cooking workshops.

She holds a degree in Psychology and Rehabilitation Services from York University and has studied Fundraising at George Brown College.

Galya’s tenure at DVI began just before the outbreak of the war, presenting unique challenges that have also been immensely rewarding. She cherishes listening to patients’ personal stories, connecting with volunteer dentists, and witnessing the diverse range of ages and backgrounds of the patients in the DVI waiting room. One of her key goals is to secure new funding sources for the clinic to continue supporting the most vulnerable citizens and making their lives a bit easier.
