Thank you all for your patience while we have worked through the intricacies of volunteer involvement during a Pandemic. Our formal Pandemic Volunteer Program for the Region's Pandemic Response is officially launched. Even though there are glimmers that the state of emergency may lift in the next few weeks, we are moving forward with the program to meet a few immediate volunteer needs. For those who have been waiting to volunteer, we are grateful and look forward to working with you in this process as you will be placed with organizations that are doing incredible work to support our community at this time.

We cannot guarantee that you will be placed in a role immediately but we will work with your skills and interests to meet priority needs. Whether or not you find a place at this time, please know that volunteers are always needed outside of formal responses. As programs and services begin again more volunteers will be needed to support new and evolving community programs. Please continue to stay updated with our newsletter for the latest information regarding volunteering in the Waterloo Region.

For those wanting specifically to assist with Covid 19 response we will be accepting applications from individuals between the ages of 19 and 64 years. This age criteria is in place to meet the guidelines of Public Health to keep the most vulnerable safe at this time.
