Foundation support from the Change Canada Charitable Foundation and the power of database technology have combined to create a local volunteer opportunities database in every town and city in Canada.
Prospective volunteers in Canada can now go to www.MyVolunteerPage.com to find volunteer opportunities close to home. This address works for towns as small as 500 people.
Canada lost 1,000,000 volunteers between 1997 and 2000 and this initiative is working to help get them back!
The project is also recruiting local volunteers to assist agencies that require help in using web based services and to promote the web address locally through the media, schools, service clubs and businesses.
