Volunteer Waterloo Region

What is a Volunteer Centre

Since 1984, Volunteer Waterloo Region has provided connections and leadership to support the development of individuals and organizations through volunteerism. Newly branded as Volunteer Waterloo Region, we continue to provide a central hub for accessing current volunteer opportunities and share best practices and continuous learning for professionals in the nonprofit sector.

Today, the organization serves over 160 charities and not-for profit organizations in the community that represent arts and culture, health, social services, education, the environment, and more. These organizations, and the added value of support from volunteers, makes Waterloo Region a community in which people want to live, work, and raise families.

Volunteer Waterloo Reegion has always been a leader and innovator in the social sector. We continue to explore and develop new and exciting ways to advocate for volunteerism through the innovative use of technology and our ever-evolving programs and events.

OUR VISION – is of a Waterloo Region that is invested in volunteerism. OUR MISSION – is to provide regional leadership and expertise on volunteerism to increase participation, quality and diversity of volunteer experiences.This will be accomplished through programs, partnerships and services that aspire to these VALUES as the foundation.

We Collaborate – working together with local community benefit organizations, individuals, businesses, and schools to promote volunteerism for a more engaged Waterloo Region. We are Helpful – we work diligently to understand the needs in our community and create valued links between those in need and those who can support them. We are Inclusive – we actively accommodate individuals with barriers to involvement, respecting everyone. Our Integrity is important to us – our actions are based on honesty, sincerity, and accountability.
