Valuable Volunteer Program

We want to ensure everyone has the ability to volunteer. The Valuable Volunteer Program is a three year program funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation working to reduce social isolation. It offers enhanced support and works to reduce barriers to any person with disabilities or mental illness looking to find meaningful volunteer opportunities. 

"If it wasn't for the staff at Volunteer Sudbury, I wouldn't be at Pioneer Manor. The hours are perfect, and the atmoshpere is delightful helping the Tuck Shop and with activities!"
