 Happy International Volunteer Managers Day!

In volunteer management, we talk a lot about how important it is for volunteers to understand the impact of their work, so that their experiences are meaningful and rewarding. But when’s the last time someone mentioned the impact of Volunteer Managers?

For International Volunteer Managers Day, pause for a minute, and think about the huge impact you have on your volunteers, your organization, and your community.

All of us at Volunteer Toronto would like to Thank You for your hard work, dedication and drive in building a strong community.

You are the starting place for greatness. 


What's It Like To Be A Volunteer Manager In Toronto?

We want to hear from you to learn about your program, the challenges you face, and the way you engage volunteers! Filling out our survey will only take ten minutes, and it will keep us up to date on the state of the voluntary sector in Toronto so that we can provide you with the best possible support.

We want to hear from your volunteers too! We’re asking volunteers, and aspiring volunteers, to give us some information about their experiences with volunteerism in Toronto. If you think your volunteers would be interested in answering a few questions about their experiences, feel free to send our survey their way! 

Spots Still Available In Our Upcoming Training

Follow the Leader: How Leadership Volunteers Can Transform Your Organization
Wednesday, November 26 - 9:30am-11:00am
