Our October Membership Meeting is hosted in partnership with 

Shifting Mindsets for Meaningful Change

✨ Thursday, October 14, 2022

✨  9:30-11:00am 

✨ Meeting virtually over Zoom 


While the value of services provided by non-profits and their volunteers greatly benefits Toronto, it’s an ongoing challenge to access the resources required to explore significant program changes. Many for-profit businesses are doing exciting things as part of their corporate social responsibility mandates, and are able to implement new ideas with support from external consultants. While non-profits may not be able to duplicate these efforts, there are benefits to stepping outside our sector bubble to learn from and consider new or inspiring approaches. 

Join members of the Toronto Neighbourhood Centre (TNC) Volunteer Group and Canadian construction company Hilti, to discover how intentional shifts to a corporate onboarding process attracted more diverse applicants.

In this session you’ll:

  • Hear how the TNC group was energized by newcomer engagement success stories
  • Benefit from corporate insights, research, and tested practices
  • Discuss tangible ways non-profits are/can begin to make changes in volunteer recruitment
