A whole new section has been launched on Explore County of Northern Lights website, an entire page dedicated to Volunteering! On the page you will find:
- Volunteer Sign Up: a section for community members interested in volunteering to submit their info and be connected to organizations looking for volunteers
- Volunteer Call Out: Organizations looking for volunteers to join their board/organization or help with an event. Your volunteer opportunity will be advertised in the Explore and County media channels (website, Facebook, newsletter, etc.)
- Volunteer Recognition Submission: The goal is to recognize our community volunteers through-out the year. Organizations and community members can submit an individual or group of people to receive a special recognition. The individual/group will be featured in the County Newsletter and Explore Facebook page. Because this program is new, it is in the growing stage! I am open to suggestions/ideas on how to expand it 😊
- Volunteer Resources: All of the non-profit/volunteer training & resources that were under Community Resources page is also on this page (Not new, but still awesome!)
- Events & Organizations Needing Volunteers: Towards the bottom of the page, you will see lists of organizations and events that are currently looking for volunteers.
You can access the page at www.explorecountyofnorthernlights.com/volunteer
This page, resources, and features are all open to community members and organizations that are in the County and Towns of Manning, Peace River and Grimshaw.
