NorthStar Ford Wood Buffalo Volunteer Centre
The NorthStar Ford Wood Buffalo Volunteer Centre strengthens our community by supporting volunteerism within the social profit sector.
We are passionate about bridging the gap between volunteers and volunteer opportunities, supporting the unique groups that utilize the power of volunteers through capacity building and our monthly Volunteer Managers Roundtable, and engaging the public, private, and non-profit sector to demonstrate leadership in the world of volunteerism. We know volunteering creates connection within a community and we are passionate about building the collective sense of volunteerism within Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo through campaigns, events and programming that meets the needs of volunteers and local organizations, agencies and groups.
Through managing and promoting WBVolunteers.ca, we provide a one-stop-shop for local volunteer opportunities, and an effective and efficient way for organizations to recruit and retain volunteers.
Additionally, our work with the local Emergency Social Services program encourages us to keep up-to-date on best practices for volunteer management and provide support in emergency situations through managing and supporting volunteers.
