As we are unable to get together in-person this year for a Volunteer Conference, we have decided to host a virtual one! Our month-long celebration will feature a variety of sessions that volunteers from across the province can register to attend. Session topics include:


Guest Speakers

We've pulled together some exciting presenters to talk to you throughout the month on mental health, how sport impacts feelings of belonging, and unified programs. 



Community Spotlight Sessions

These sessions feature your fellow volunteers, LETR partners, and athletes! Learn from their expertise and experience on a variety of topics including fundraisers, virtual engagement, all things athletes, and various volunteering topics.



SOO Sessions

Led by SOO staff and partners, these sessions will teach you new skills, cover relevant topics, and answer some of your burning SOO questions. 



School Sessions

Join a panel of educators to discuss a variety of topics pertaining to school programs or tune in to a presentation regarding transitioning athletes from school to community programs. 



NCCP

Throughout the month we will be hosting coach education sessions, including SOC's Competition Introduction, Athletics Ontario's Foundations in Coaching, and Boccia Ontario's Learn to Coach Boccia   



Social Sessions

We can't meet around the campfire this year, but we can get some social time in! Join us for happy hour, help your fellow volunteers escape the SOO storage room, or try your luck at trivia.
