The Volunteer Action Centre welcomes nonprofit and charitable organizations to become members of our organization to receive access to the many services listed below. In short, we provide support with volunteer recruitment, professional development and advocacy. Together, we develop community capacity for volunteerism by building strategic partnerships and promoting community engagement. VAC also supports charities by sharing information and resources, providing recruitment and recognition that continually demonstrates how volunteers make a difference.

On average, each year we represent and support 150 local member organizations who serve Kitchener, Waterloo and the Townships of Wellesley, Wilmot, and Woolwich. The Volunteer Action Centre mandate is to build and strengthen volunteerism in our Region through the development of education, recruitment and recognition opportunities.

Note: The Volunteer Action Centre does not screen prospective volunteers before referral to or on behalf of a member organization.
