   About the Position

Impact Statement
As we rebuild and reimagine, there has never been a more important time to make connections across sectors. Local organizations and United Way agencies are working hard to pivot and rebuild this next phase of social support, and volunteerism is a critical piece of the puzzle.

Is your group eager to learn more about how or where to get connected to your community or learn about how to design group volunteering ideas? We know you and your workplace are dedicated to giving back to your community in multiple ways.

With this opportunity we invite you and a group of your colleagues to join the Volunteer Waterloo Region and United Way WR for a virtual innovation circle where we will reimagine new ways of volunteerism during and after Covid-19. We will discuss what is important to you as volunteers, how you see you contributing now and in the future, and new ideas you have for supporting our community!

Maybe we can create a VOLUNTEER FAIR at YOUR business, community centre or local school! You can help others learn about how to engage in their communities at work, home or play.
