Shopping for Volunteer Opportunities

Posted by: in North West, Uncategorized

We all choose a volunteer opportunity that engages our heart with experiences that create fond memories for life. Better yet, I like to compare the fit of choosing a volunteer opportunity to that fit of a perfect pair of shoes (ladies you know what I mean…). Beat the winter blues with a little retail therapy “volunteer style” – give back to your community. What’s on your Community “Volunteer” shopping list.? What Volunteer Opportunity best suites or matches your personality? Volunteer Retail departments to browse  or select from (but not limited to):

– Support Local Causes

– Working with Seniors

– Working with kids

– Service Clubs

– Sports and Recreation

– Arts and Culture

Where to go shopping:

1. govolunteer
govolunteer.ca is a one-stop-shop online portal where interested Albertans can easily search volunteer opportunities best suited to their skills and interests in communities across Alberta.

2. Local Community Websites

3. Local Family and Community Services (FCSS Agency)

4. Your local Schools

On a side note; April 15 – 21 2012 is National Volunteer Week and many communities are celebrating their volunteers .

It’s important that we take time to express our gratitude to all volunteers. The most effective way to thank them for their great efforts is to highlight how their voluntary contributions are making a positive impact in each of our communities. Volunteers want to know the impact of their efforts.

I am proud to acknowledge I am just one of many volunteers in my community and I am always “shopping” for new volunteer challenges or opportunities.  As women, we want several good pairs of shoes to choose from depending on our outfit or mood. Lets go shopping together…
