Volunteer Halifax strives to make Halifax, Nova Scotia, a better place by helping nonprofit organizations build stronger relationships with individuals in their community.
At Volunteer Halifax, we take pride in:
- linking people with local community organizations;
- supporting persons with disabilities, new Canadians, corporations and professionals connect to organizations in and around the city;
- encouraging youth to get involved;
- helping individuals develop skills to advance their careers;
- developing knowledge resources that support effective and efficient volunteer capacity; and
- making Halifax a better place.
How Does It Work?
It is really quite simple! Nonprofit organizations in Halifax post their volunteer opportunities and positions, and individuals (e.g., youth, seniors, persons with disabilities) browse and choose what opportunities interest them. We here at Volunteer Halifax are just in the middle, trying to streamline the matching process. Apart from the initial registration and posting of ads, you will not have to contact us at all (unless of course you want to)! Individuals interested in volunteering will be able to contact nonprofit organizations directly through email.
Promoting the efforts of nonprofit organizations and available volunteer opportunities is an important job. We will, when time permits, promote both our website, participating organizations and individual volunteer opportunities. We will use a variety of social media outlets (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+) for promotional purposes.
You may have noticed that we have advertisements on several of our pages. The pittance we generate from these ads will be used to cover costs associated with domain registration, web hosting, etc. As our community continues to grow, we will rely on this revenue to ensure we secure the necessary resources to scale appropriately!
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to get in touch, just head on over to our Contact Us page! Alternatively, you could reach us through various social media outlets – Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
