Finding and Applying for a Position:

To look for a volunteer position, you can use the different filter buttons (Keyword Search, Skills, Youth, etc.) to narrow down your search, or click on ‘All Positions’ to take a look at all positions available.  To search by geographical region, you must first select your area(s) of interest. (See filter descriptions below for more information)

Once you find a position that you wish to apply to, click on the ‘Apply Now’ button (or follow instructions in the position description). Organizations will have different application procedures, including filling out forms, interviews, applying by email, etc. You may wish to connect with the organization directly to find out more information on the position and how to apply.

You can also create your own 'user profile'. You manage your user profile, which will be sent to the organization when you apply for a position from the website.
