About Volunteer Centres

Volunteer Centres exist primarily to foster and develop volunteerism in the community as a whole. Volunteer Centres engage in four general kinds of activities:

Promoting Volunteerism

Volunteer Centres raise awareness of the power of service, encourage people to volunteer, provide information about volunteerism and recognize the contribution of volunteers. Some examples include celebrating National Volunteer Week and conducting volunteer fairs.

Building Capacity for

Effective Local Volunteering

Volunteer Centres help voluntary sector organizations, and other groups and individuals that work with volunteers, do a better job recruiting, managing and retaining volunteers. Some examples include offering training programs, one to one consultations, and providing support to organizations that work with volunteers.

Providing Leadership on Issues Relating to Volunteerism 

Volunteer Centres serve as a convenor for the community and a catalyst for action. They work through local partnerships and collaborations with various groups and organizations, government, schools, and community leaders to identify needs and mobilize volunteer response. Some examples include speaking on behalf of volunteers, convening or participating on committees & collaborations, and advising volunteers of community needs.

Connecting People with Opportunities to Serve

Volunteer Centres provide people with easy access to a wide variety of opportunities to connect to their community through service. Some examples include targetting programs for special populations, offering recruitment and referral services, and managing direct services involving volunteers.
