Volunteer Calgary has been helping people in Calgary to get involved in their community for over half a century by promoting the value of volunteering, connecting people with opportunities to volunteer, strengthening the ability of groups and individuals to support volunteers, and providing leadership on issues related to volunteerism. The organization hosts Leadership Calgary, the local Community Leadership Program.
Leadership Calgary is partnering with Altruvest to implement the BoardMatch program in the Calgary area. BoardMatch matches prospective board candidates, primarily from the corporate sector, with charities looking for board members with specific skills. The program also provides online training for volunteers and charities concerning critical issues of board governance.
