6 Ways Volunteering Can You Help You When Looking For Work 

Looking for work can be tough! Volunteering is a way to help you gain skills and experience for the job market. It also allows you to try out new things, network with people and have fun!

This 1.5 hour interactive session will focus on the who, what, when, where and how of volunteering and 6 ways volunteering can help you when looking for work.

 Questions that will be answered include:

  • How do I find a volunteer position?
  • How can I gain transferable skills from a volunteer opportunity?
  • What are the benefits of volunteering when looking for work? 
  • How do I highlight volunteering on my resume? 

 The session will be led by Iona Frost, Community Engagement Volunteer at Volunteer Toronto, and will include stories from people who have volunteered while looking for work. We also welcome a special guest from Skills For Change Employment Agency.
