Niagara’s Volunteer Centre

We will help you discover rewarding volunteer opportunities that suit your talents, interests and schedule.


How To Get Started:

1. Explore Our Online Volunteer Database – www.niagara.cioc.ca/volunteer/

Create a profile on our Volunteer Database, where you’ll be able to be able to see a listing of volunteer organizations and activities based on categories such as time commitment or the days of the week when they take place.  If you don’t want to create a profile, just search the database for opportunities that meet your interests and needs.

2. Attend Your Volunteer Activity

Show up for the activities that you’ve signed up for. Enjoy the experience! Share your expertise or learn new skills.  Volunteering can be used to explore careers, to build on existing skills or learn new skills.  It can also be an opportunity for you to give back to your community, to a specific organization or to a cause that means something to you.

If you are a secondary school student, keep a record of your volunteer hours for future reference. This will make a very impressive addition to your resume or it may be required for you to graduate from Secondary School in Ontario.

3. Evaluate the Experience

After your volunteer activity, consider the experience and determine what you liked or did not like and incorporate that into your decision when seeking the next volunteer experience.
