What We Do

Volunteer Connect helps build a stronger, more thoughtful community through innovative programs that inspire, inform, and connect volunteers with the organizations that need them.

Through our online platform, we connect people of all ages to valuable volunteer opportunities to build social capital in the communities we serve.

To date, we have connected volunteers to over 400 of our non-profit members across Markham,
Richmond Hill, and Vaughan.

Volunteering Weaves Us Together

National Volunteer Week 2023 launched this year’s theme “Volunteer Weaves Us Together”. This shows us the value of volunteering to the strength and vibrancy of our communities through the interconnected actions we take to support each other!
