Volunteer MBC’s mission is to “promote meaningful volunteerism and foster best practices through learning and development.” StepUp Ambassadors contribute to this mission by working towards increasing the overall volunteer pool in the region. We learn about community needs and available volunteer opportunities. We build and develop our skills, and put them into action by organizing and participating in volunteer initiatives. We spread the word about volunteerism in a way that makes it more accessible to the community.

The ripple effect

StepUp aims to grow the volunteer pool. We’re about inclusivity, not exclusivity, and therefore we’re always in need of new Ambassadors. As a StepUp Ambassador, you’ll gain the knowhow to make a difference in your neighbourhood. We recruit new members on an ongoing basis.

There are many volunteer opportunities in Peel and yet many organizations struggle to fill them. Volunteer MBC leverages the human power of the StepUp Ambassadors to spread the word about meaningful volunteerism. Not only do we promote active volunteer postings, but we also engage people at levels of public life to help us wave the banner of volunteerism. As we help people understand the value of their time, they in turn can make a more positive impact on our community.

Practical skills

Becoming an Ambassador is a process that builds your skills in social awareness, project management, communication, community development and civic engagement. Our General Meetings provide opportunities for training and teamwork, and then we fan out to conduct outreach in our schools and neighbourhoods. If you are looking to enhance your leadership skills, you can apply for a position on our Executive Team or one of our committees. Many StepUp Ambassadors leverage their experience when applying to post-secondary studies, scholarships and job opportunities.
