Becoming a volunteer Help for students and recent graduates
Across the country, students and recent graduates are looking for ways to contribute to Canada’s response to COVID-19. The Government of Canada has launched the I Want to Help platform so that they can give back to their communities while gaining valuable experience and growing their skill set.
Students and recent graduates aged 30 or under who volunteer with a charity or not-for-profit organization may be eligible to apply for the new Canada Student Service Grant. The more volunteer hours eligible students put in over the summer, the higher the grant amount they can receive.
Recruiting volunteersHelp for charities and not-for-profits
This platform aims to help charities and not-for-profit organizations who are supporting Canada’s response to COVID 19. Big or small, many of these organizations provide essential services to their communities.
We want to help them recruit volunteers so that they can keep accomplishing their mission to be there for Canadians through this pandemic.
