Volunteer Referral Service

Want to Volunteer?

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find volunteering both challenging and rewarding.

Volunteer Referral Service

We are very pleased to offer our free referral and outreach service, which matches individuals who have an interest in volunteering with agencies who are seeking volunteers. Every week, agencies across Manitoba forward us information about available volunteer opportunities within their organizations, which we then share with the public. These volunteer opportunities are uploaded to our website, where individuals can search for a position and apply directly through our website.

Online Volunteer Opportunities

Find the opportunity that is right for you! Search our online volunteer opportunities by category of interest, keyword, region of Manitoba, community, or organization of interest. New positions are posted weekly so you will have access to the most current volunteer positions.

Referral Appointments

Individuals who are interested in volunteering and would like assistance with their search have the opportunity to book a ½ hour consultation with a staff member to determine their skills sets and interests. The staff person will assist them in finding a position that best matches what they are looking for. Interviews and screening processes are performed by the agencies directly.

To guarantee a staff person is available, please book your referral appointment in advance. Complete the online booking request form or email referral@volunteermanitoba.ca to book an appointment.
