Youth Central works with over 1,100 young people to contribute more than 32,000 volunteer hours to the Calgary Community through collaborating organizations. To see a list of our collaborating organizations, click here.
In order to fulfill your request for Youth Central’s youth volunteers, we ask that your non-profit or charitable organization become a collaborating organization. Collaborating organizations can submit unlimited group volunteer requests through the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) Program (Youth Central requires advance notification of all volunteer requests; projects are subject to approval). We post the opportunity on our database and recruit the volunteers for you. We will also assign a Youth Central staff member (referred to as a Team Leader) who will be responsible for the Youth Central volunteers during the shift but also act as your liaison to ensure all required information is passed along to the volunteers in advance.
If you are not a collaborating organization, please fill out the proposal and we will follow-up, requesting that you become a collaborating organization. Becoming a collaborating organization includes an annual fee based upon an organization’s annual operating budget. UPDATE: Please note that until May 1, 2022 Youth Central is waiving all collaborating organization fees. There is no obligation to pay the fee at this time.
