Volunteering is an opportunity to connect with your community to create a positive impact. 

We believe volunteerism is crucial for creating healthy, vibrant, and connected Alberta communities. Through volunteering, you can create a positive impact and help shape the future for your community.

  • Generosity: It’s an opportunity to give back, pay it forward, or help others, which in turn can be fulfilling for you.
  • Passion: It’s a way to make a difference about something you care about.
  • Resourcefulness: It’s an opportunity to accomplish things in your community that otherwise wouldn’t get done.
  • Connection: It’s a great way to meet new people and become part of a community.
  • Belonging: It can help to improve your language skills and get acquainted with a new culture.
  • Health: Volunteering has been shown to improve overall health and wellbeing.
  • Ambition: It builds your résumé and offers great work experience.
  • Learning: It can offer new knowledge and skills.
  • Adventure: It’s a chance to try something new or different.
