VO is recruiting and deploying volunteers to respond to the volunteer needs specific to COVID-19 in Ottawa, Prescott-Russell, Lanark County and Renfrew County while ensuring proper screening and training protocals to safeguard the health of those volunteering and those they are assisting. Please see the intake portals for volunteers, for members, and for other agencies on our hompage. VO’s COVID 19 volunteer deployment program is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Ottawa Community Foundation.
We connect government and corporate employers with not-for-profits through our employer supported volunteerism program, VO Connect.
We connect seniors, youth, people with disabilities and new Canadians with not-for-profits who want an inclusive volunteer pool.
We connect qualified candidates from under-represented groups with not-for-profits seeking to diversify their Board of Directors through our Diversity in Leadership program.
We connect with the general public to promote volunteering through our Speakers Bureau.
