Group Volunteering

A circle of friends, a company’s employees, a youth group, a service club, a class, a faith group, a family or a neighbourhood can do group volunteering.

What’s the best way to engage a group of volunteers? First, assess your organization’s capacity to engage groups. Identify new or existing projects that may benefit from the support of a group of volunteers.

Contact your local volunteer centre for more information on group volunteering and download the resources listed below.

We also have resources specific to families wanting to volunteer together here.
