The City of Waterloo has a rich history of volunteerism that continues to flourish. There are many opportunities for you to get involved and give back to this community.

Volunteer Services runs two awards programs throughout the year to say "thank you" to those who contribute to make Waterloo a great place to live, work and play. The Community Builders Awards Program recognizes volunteer service milestones of those who contribute to the many programs services, festivals and events. The Waterloo Award recognizes civic engagement, those who are impactful leaders and innovators who have made significant contributions to our incredible city. 

Interested in other volunteer resources?  The Volunteer Action Centre of Kitchener-Waterloo posts volunteer positions with over 150 organizations and assists both volunteers and organizations.  Volunteer Canada  provides tools, trends and guidlines for both those who are interested in volunteering, and those who manage volunteers.  PAVRO is the provincial resource for Volunteer Managers and VMPC is the national resource for Volunteer Managers.
