Volunteers are essential in our ability to accomplish our mission. Without our dedicated volunteers, who generously give their time and energy to keep our Administration, Thrift Shop, Resource Centre and Childcare running smoothly, we would not be able to offer such a wide range and high quality services.

All volunteers will be required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement, agreeing to keep all client information confidential. Volunteers will also be required to sign a Disclosure Statement, stating if they have any criminal convictions or current criminal charges. Positions that work with children or work one-on-one with clients will require a Child Abuse Registry Check, at the applicant’s expense. Having a criminal record or criminal charges does not necessarily mean that a person cannot volunteer – a decision will be made based on the recency of the charges and the relevancy to the position.
To apply for any of these positions, download our THRIVE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION. Once we have received your volunteer application, we will contact you for an interview if there are openings in the positions you are interested in. Completed applications can be emailed to the manager of the site you have chosen to volunteer. Thank you for applying.
A United Way Winnipeg Day of Caring is an opportunity for workplaces to volunteer and help a United Way Winnipeg agency partner or non-profit organization complete a project that contributes to local community development, renewal, and pride. Building something, painting, helping put on an event for children or cleaning up a community space are common Day of Caring examples.
To find out more about United Way Winnipeg Day of Caring opportunities for your workplace email firstname.lastname@example.org
This unique, year-round opportunity for co-workers and other groups to make a difference in Winnipeggers’ lives by working together on meaningful volunteer projects with local community organizations that focus on:
- Helping kids be all they can be;
- Moving people from poverty to possibility; and
- Encouraging healthy people and strong communities
United Way will match your volunteer group with a non-profit organization to complete a project that complements your priorities, skills, schedule and available people power. Most projects require between five and 20 volunteers; take an average of four weeks to plan, and one-half to one full day to complete.
Past projects have included:
- Helping host a special event like a community barbeque or holiday party
- Working alongside community residents to help beautify a neighbourhood by planting flowers, building a community garden, or participating in a community cleanup
- Collecting donations of much-needed items, including gently used clothing or household goods, hygiene products, or new socks and underwear
- If you have an idea for a project not already on our list, we’ll be happy to explore the need and opportunities.
If you are a non-profit organization in Winnipeg that needs help completing a short-term project, please contact United Way. A Day of Caring is an opportunity to accomplish tasks beyond what your budget and resources may allow. It’s also a good way to put your work and your clients’ needs at the forefront of Winnipeggers’ minds.
