We really enjoyed  partnering with the University of Victoria again last year to put on Project Serve Day on October 1st, 2016.

The goal of Project Serve Day is to connect enthusiastic and energetic UVic students and alumni with community groups who need their help. This will be the first opportunity for many UVic students to get involved in the larger community that surrounds their campus, and we hope it won’t be the last!

Whether students and alumni continue volunteering with the same organization or are motivated to pursue their own interests, Project Serve Day can get them started!

Finding the Volunteer Position right for you can be difficult, follow these tips to get the most of our Volunteer Opportunities database.

To narrow your results, you can filter by category: 

  • Position type: Search for a position with the Position Type category. 
  • Organization:  Search for volunteer opportunities offered by a particular non-profit in the Organizations category such as BC SPCA or Habitat for Humanity
  • Organization Type:  Look for volunteer opportunities in a available sector, such as Arts and Culture or Healthcare 
  • Age: Find Age appropriate positions under the Other factors category

    NOTE: You may notice that some positions state 19+ for age range of volunteers, this is not always be the case. If you are really interested in the position, it’s a good idea to inquire about the age range. You can ask either the Youth Team manager, or the volunteer coordinator listed on the posting.
