Interested in volunteering for an organization in the community but don't know where to start?
Think about the specifics of what you really want to do. What are your interests? Do you want a hands on or a behind the scenes job? Where do you live and how easily can you get around? Organizations have a difficult time placing you with rewarding work if they do not know anything about you.
Go to goodNS This is Nova Scotia's volunteer matching website. Create a profile or just brows the posted volunteer options.
If you are looking for a regular volunteer opportunity and are able to commit to at least a year you can look through the list of our funded agencies and follow up with them independently to inquire if they have volunteer opportunities. Each organization will have different requirements and needs (e.g. criminal record checks). Some may not need volunteers at this time.
