Halton, Ontario to Edmonton, Alberta Volunteerism Across the Land!
We love seeing what our friends across the country are up to. The work they are doing and open to sharing-
Volunteer Halton published their ‘Our Halton’ report which brings together their own data along with tons of other research to tell the story of volunteerism in Halton Region. Check out the footnotes for so many brilliant other points of interesting reads, including research from the University of Waterloo are on engaging youth in philanthropy.
Our friends in Edmonton at ECVO published a lovely story featuring Turlough from the Winspear Centre (Edmonton Symphony Orchestra) and how we took an opportunity to shift the culture of a volunteer program. Turlough was a speaker at our Symposium in the Fall and we also enjoy his perspective.
CBC’s show Now or Never featured a whole episode on people stepping up in their community to respond to need. You can listen to that episode here!
