Welcome to Alberta’s Youth VOLUNTEER! Society.

About Alberta’s YouthVOLUNTEER! Society

Alberta’s YouthVOLUNTEER! Society is a youth-driven organization committed to encouraging, enhancing and supporting youth volunteerism across Alberta. By working with charities/non-profit organizations and youth ages 14-24, we strive to foster collaboration between motivated youth volunteers and the organizations and citizens in need of volunteer support.

Presentation Series:  We offer on-site educational presentations and workshops to schools and non-profit agencies looking to learn more about the benefits of youth volunteerism.  All of our programs are interactive and geared towards people who want to make a difference.   Some of our presentations focus solely on the topic youth volunteerism, while others focus on getting youth involved around global issues. Presentations are also offered to organizations looking for information on youth engagement.

 Want more info about presentations? Contact us at info@youthvolunteer.ca.

Advocacy and Collaboration: Our youth board, staff and volunteers strive to promote the strengths, needs and concerns of youth volunteers.  We collaborate with various agencies and organizations in the sector to increase the profile of youth volunteerism and promote our mandate.

Alberta’s YouthVOLUNTEER! Society has the exciting privilege of hosting the Vitalize Youth/Mentor Program.  The Vitalize Conference, presented by the Government of Alberta, is the premier voluntary sector event of the year.  The Youth/Mentor Program is planned by and for youth volunteers and is always a lot of fun!   Information about this event will be available on our website under the Events section.

Youth Board of Directors:  Our board is comprised of youth ages 14-24 from across the province.  Board members are passionate about youth volunteerism and embrace the mission and mandate of our organization.   Elections are held at our Annual General Meeting in June.  

Want to join our Board? Contact us at info@youthvolunteer.ca.

Online Volunteer Hub: Our website is the where volunteers, youth groups and organizations can share information, resources and volunteer opportunities.  This virtual centre offers a volunteer matching service, discussion forums, articles and resource links.  All youth and non-profit agencies are encouraged to participate and send in articles, resources, events and of course volunteer opportunities!
