Session Description

How can we bridge the gap between what Canadians are looking for in volunteering today and how organizations are engaging volunteers? Learn more about new Canadian research that captures what Canadians want in their volunteer experiences, their issues in finding satisfying volunteer roles, and what organizations can do to enhance their volunteer base, achieve their mission and ultimately build stronger communities. A panel of experts from the museum and voluntary sector will provide highlights of the research and discuss strategies for engaging museum volunteers, new Canadians and youth.
