Building great public places is what we do every day — and that work is never done alone. We work with community builders across sectors to solve some of the most pressing issues cities face: climate change, housing affordability, and access to nature and public spaces.
How our volunteers help shape our work at Evergreen.
By: Christine Martin, Senior Manager, Volunteer Engagement at Evergreen
As our world is changing, so is volunteering.
People seeking to volunteer in our communities are looking to make an impact while having a meaningful experience. Many are looking for high quality opportunities — beyond the traditional menial tasks — where they can shape their own experience.
With a strong sense of social responsibility, volunteers want to improve our communities and cities, but the relationship isn’t just one-sided.
While volunteering has always been for everyone, shifts in the types of roles available and the length of commitment, means younger people, people who work full-time and new Canadians are now finding it easier to donate their time.
