Volunteer Manitoba is the leader and catalyst for engaging all Manitobans in volunteerism. Our vital contributions to the community include connecting people with volunteer opportunities, promoting volunteerism, and providing leadership and counsel in the voluntary sector.
Volunteer Manitoba was established in 1978 when the United Way and the Winnipeg Foundation realized a need to support the voluntary sector and volunteerism in Manitoba as a separate agency. Prior to this time, Volunteer Manitoba was known as the Central Volunteer Bureau and provided volunteer assistance during wartime community projects by acting as the central pool of recruiting, training and placement of volunteers. Today, this need is served by our volunteer referral website and our programs, services and partnerships have dramatically expanded to help non-profit organizations and individuals to enhance their capacity to meet the needs of their communities.
Volunteer Manitoba promotes and recognizes volunteerism across the province, connects Manitobans, and builds capacity to meet community needs.
