The development of the Nelson and Area Volunteer Hub is underway with the completion of a Business Plan and Partner Program. The Hub will not only connect and support Nelson and Area’s significant group of organizations and volunteers, but also be a new community asset that will provide leadership in creating innovative ways to add to the social, economic, and environmental well-being of our community through volunteer- involving programs.

We are now embarking upon ensuring the Hub’s sustainability through the Partner Program which will attract organizations that value the integral role volunteerism plays in creating a connected, resilient, vibrant community.

Organizations being approached to partner include:

  • volunteer-involving organizations that engage large numbers of volunteers
  • local and regional government
  • organizations with volunteer engagement programs
  • community-based funding agencies
  • corporate giving organizations
  • local businesses

Initial enquiries are also being made to secure funding to build the online Hub, then pilot it in 2020. Watch this space to learn more about completion of the Development Phase and the transition to the Build and Pilot Phase!
