Virtual Volunteer Ideas Sheet

Volunteering has changed dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to keep the momentum going, organizations can offer virtual volunteering opportunities to keep volunteers engaged. Today’s volunteering includes donating your time and skills virtually. Instead of being physically available to volunteer, many people have found their place in the world of virtual volunteering.

For many roles, all you need is an internet connection to make a difference! We’ve compiled a list of virtual volunteer ideas from organizations across BC in our info sheet. Check it out here.

Volunteer BC Celebrated National Volunteer Week on April 19-25, 2020!

This year’s theme was: “It’s time to applaud this country’s volunteers.

From coast to coast to coast, Canada’s volunteers work tirelessly to spur progress in their community, city and country. They give their time in support of causes and programs they believe in and ask for nothing in return.

Thank you for all the amazing photos of volunteers across BC!
