Volunteer Resource Centre

The Volunteer Resource Centre facilitates community volunteer involvement through promotion, recruiting, interviewing, screening, placing, referring, supporting and recognizing volunteers in our community. We strive to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities, promote life-long learning, support external organizations who recruit volunteers and provide services and support to vulnerable residents.

Our Mission

Connecting the community through volunteerism.

Our Vision

A strong, supportive and vibrant community enhanced by volunteer involvement.

“The world is hugged by the faithful arms of volunteers.”
Applying to Become a Volunteer

The Town of Okotoks Volunteer Resource Centre can help connect you to a non-profit organization or individual that needs your help. Volunteers complete an application form, are interviewed and then connected with a volunteer opportunity that fits their schedule and utilizes their skills. There are many ways to be involved in the community. If you don't see a position under the Volunteer Opportunities section that interests you, then call us and we will work with you to try and create the best volunteer experience for you.

How Do I Sign Up to Volunteer?

The Town of Okotoks has a volunteer registry where volunteers apply, are screened, and are then connected with a Town of Okotoks opportunity that fits their schedule and utilizes their skills.  In addition, referrals will also be made to local not for profits and organizations to ensure that all volunteers in Okotoks have access to as many opportunities as possible.

STEP 1
