So, you want to volunteer in Kelowna but don’t know where to start?

Contact Stephanie Moore and Kelowna Community Resources if you want to attend a Volunteer Orientation session.

KELOWNA - A new one-hour volunteer orientation session will help you discover not only what you’re most interested in, but what agencies might be looking for your particular skills.

“We often hear that people aren’t sure where or how to get involved,” Stephanie Moore, Project Coordinator for Kelowna Community Resources said in a news release. “It can be discouraging when individuals don’t find the right volunteer ‘fit’. They may stop their search and not have the confidence to try again.”

The sessions will help people discover their interests and skills and explore the different ways to search for volunteer opportunities as well as what to expect when they apply for a volunteer position.

Kelowna Community Resources has coordinated an annual volunteer fair, offered workshops for volunteer managers and supervisors and matched volunteers with non-profits for more than 20 years.

The sessions run from 5:15-6:15 p.m. for the next few months, starting today, Feb. 26. The other dates are March 14, March 26, April 23, May 7 and June 4. They’re held at their office at 620 Leon Ave., 2nd floor, in downtown Kelowna.
