Ways To Get Involved

Administrative/Office Work

Many organizations require volunteers for office administration assistance such as reception duties, typing and research. Organizations often seek volunteers to help out at busy times with publicity campaigns or fundraising drives. Potential activities can include reception and administrative work, computing, managing a committee, and much more. 

Animals and the Environment

Do you love the outdoors? Are you passionate about a the environment? We may not always have the weather – but that doesn’t hold back thousands of volunteers from volunteering throughout the year! Activities include beautification, public engagement and teaching. 

Arts, Culture and History

There are lots of amazing ways to volunteer in the arts. You can volunteer by teaching, coaching, set design and assisting with a variety of arts and crafts from fine art to card making. If you’re musical, you can volunteer as a musician at a local nursing home or community centre. Of course, you don’t necessarily have to be artistic to volunteer in the arts – why not help out behind the scenes with a local theatre group or promote an arts project in your area.


Befriending/mentoring can offer volunteers the opportunity to provide support and friendship to a person who may be going through a difficult period, is feeling lonely, or is adjusting to a major change in their life. Potential activities can include meeting with a client to go shopping or visiting a client who might be isolated in their community to have a chat over a cup of coffee.
