Volunteer at United Way York Region

Volunteers are the backbone of United Way. Year after year our volunteers’ energy, dedication and commitment help us reach our goals.

From canvassing colleagues and employees for financial support, to participating in numerous committees and boards to ensure transparency and improve public awareness, volunteers are a dynamic and essential component of everything we do here at United Way.

We have many important and fulfilling volunteer opportunities that will support the community and help make a better future for our region including event and operational support and our Community Investment Committee.

Event Support

There are currently no event-related volunteer opportunities. Event support includes, but is not limited to, set-up and take-down duties. Please check back in the future for new volunteer opportunities.

Operational Support

Throughout the year, United Way York Region has several volunteer opportunities that enable us to run our United Way operations, and we definitely couldn’t do what we do without you. By donating your time and help, we can continue to strengthen communities and improve the lives of many across our region. Opportunities will be posted here as soon as they become available.

Community Investment Subcommittee

Volunteers on United Way’s Community Investment Subcommittees support the Community Investment Committee in transitioning to the 2016-2021 investment cycle. They are active members of the community who provide expertise and advice to assist United Way in proactively and strategically investing in programs, initiatives and partnerships that make an impact on the priority areas of youth, poverty and neighbourhoods in York Region. There are currently no new volunteer opportunities on the subcommittees.
