Peace River’s Volunteer Hub

Every great town has an army of amazing volunteers. You can make a valuable contribution to your community while learning new skills and improving your health and well-being. The Volunteer Hub is a great place for volunteers to connect with organizations and not-for-profits. It is also a place where organizations can advertise their volunteer opportunities.
