Welcome to the holiday season and please join Flamborough Connects as it launches the annual
Join Flamborough Connects at the Ignite Fair
Local non-profits and charities are resuming activities and events put on hold for the last two years — and that means volunteer recruitment will start ramping up throughout the community.
On Saturday, Nov. 5, Flamborough Volunteers will be joining Pledges for Change and Volunteer Toronto by hosting a booth at the Ignite Fair — not your typical youth volunteer fair.
Pledges for Change is an Ontario-based youth-led group transforming the way young people engage in social impact. They founded the Ignite Fair in 2014 and have since engaged 6,200 students. Volunteer Toronto is Canada’s largest volunteer centre connecting volunteers and the organizations that need them. They have hosted an annual Youth Expo engaging more than 45,000 youth since 2015.
This joint initiative will provide a dynamic virtual space to assist young people on their journey to meaningful volunteering, and open new doors to explore community engagement and the non-profit sector.
This year, Ignite Fair will bring together high school students and non-profit organizations across Ontario in a dynamic virtual space. Organizations will be able to connect with youth, in their region and across the province, who are interested in in-person and virtual volunteering roles.
Youth can register for this event by visiting info.volunteertoronto.ca/ignitefair. Flamborough youth will have the opportunity to connect with non-profit organizations across this community and throughout Ontario.
Local non-profit organizations including sports organizations, service clubs, social and food service, animal rescue providers and faith groups can register by visiting info.volunteertoronto.ca/npregistration by Oct. 24.
