The United Way Volunteer Centre matches local charities with volunteers who lend their skills and expertise to local organizations.

Not-for-profit organizations from across the region come to us with their volunteer opportunities and we make them available to people like you, with time and talent to share. We help you get started on the road to a fulfilling volunteer experience.

Local non-profit and charitable organizations need volunteers and the necessary tools and resources to pursue their missions but they face many challenges, such as difficulty recruiting and training board members, and difficulty retaining volunteers. United Way connects volunteers and strengthens the network of services and capacities of non-profit organizations in our local community for the benefit of all.
