The 2013 General Social Survey - Giving, Volunteering and Participating found Canadian youth have volunteered more than any other age group and are well above the national average when it comes to volunteerism!

Volunteerism teaches youth the value of civic participation and leads youth to become lifelong community builders. And Volunteer Manitoba can support and guide youth in their volunteer efforts.

The Volunteer Manitoba Youth Program engages with young people, between the ages of 15 and 29, providing the tools and resources to inspire them to become involved in their communities through a commitment to volunteerism. The program is a valuable resource to youth, agencies, educators, parents, and communities throughout Manitoba by:

  • Raising awareness in youth and young adults about the value of volunteerism to explore and prepare for employment, gain meaningful life experiences, and connect to their communities and roles as engaged citizens
  • Educating agencies and communities about how to best involve youth and young adults to address the need of continuity of volunteer resources

Thanks to the generous support of Canada Life, we reach thousands of youth and young adults each year!
