We are asking you to take 6 minutes to share your experience as a volunteer. This survey will inform us of the types of activities that volunteers - like you - are seeking, and how you like to volunteer. This information increases our understanding of volunteerism in Saskatchewan and helps nonprofits ensure they are designing opportunities that will engage volunteers.
Let's get Saskatchewan's VolunteerConnector off the ground!
We have partnered with the Community Initiatives Fund and are excited to offerVolunteerConnector – a new-to-Saskatchewan free online volunteer recruitment platform. VolunteerConnector is free to use and allows nonprofits to post unlimited volunteer opportunities anywhere in Saskatchewan! It takes two minutes to set up your VolunteerConnector profile.
We need your help spreading the word about this awesome platform! First, we need to spread the awareness that this platform exists and have nonprofits add their volunteer opportunities to the platform. Once we have nonprofits posting their volunteer opportunities, we will share VolunteerConnector far and wide across Saskatchewan, so eager volunteers can find the right opportunities for them.
