We know a little about the Impact of Volunteers in rural Ontario and right here in Tobermory:

  • Half of rural volunteers volunteer in multiple organizations
  • Cross pollination of people, ideas, opportunities make more resilient organizations
  • Alliances among volunteers and organizations keep doors of opportunity and collaboration open; create efficiencies
  • Monitoring the need for volunteers can identify need and gaps
  • Volunteers can be leaders in change; act independently; be bold
