Description

Volunteer Ottawa Needs your help hosting our first in-person Volunteer Expo since 2019!

Get back into your community with Ottawa’s Volunteer Expo on September 23. Local organizations in need of volunteers, and volunteers in search of opportunities, will have a chance to meet and talk in-person at the Expo. Come to network and meet nonprofit organizations from across the greater Ottawa region!

Volunteers will help with:

– Registration at the door

– Tracking attendee numbers

– Assisting Volunteer Ottawa Staff with guiding individuals throughout the event space

– Assisting Volunteer Ottawa Staff members in prepping all event rooms

DATE: September 23, 2022

TIME FOR VOLUNTEERS TO ATTEND: 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

TIME OF EVENT: 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We will have one Zoom call with the volunteers prior to the event to assign event roles and give the volunteers an opportunity to learn more about the event, prior to the event date.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
This opportunity could help a volunteer gain community service hours, and help volunteers build a strong network amongst the Not-for Profits across the Ottawa Region. Additionally, this volunteer opportunity could lead to long-term volunteering opportunities with Volunteer Ottawa, working closely with its staff.
How will the organization benefit?
Volunteer Ottawa is an organization driven by its members and by volunteers. The Volunteer Ottawa exemplifies how the support of volunteers builds a stronger community. With the support of volunteers, this event will run much more efficiently.
