Are you interested in being involved with a cause but you have no idea where to begin? 

Are you already involved with a cause and you would like to find more volunteers?

The purpose of our group is to bring together people who are looking for volunteers with people who are looking for a cause. We believe that finding a cause should be an inspirational and social experience. 

Get involved:

--> Click here if you represent an organization looking for volunteers

--> Read the information below if you are interested in finding a cause to support

This Meetup group is part of the Calopia project and sponsored by The Meaningful Discussions Project

Types of Events

Some of our events will be cause shopping (Calopia) events and some events will be a discussion format with the intentions of:

1) exploring the challenges involved with volunteering (and finding a cause)

2) sharing best practices on how to retain volunteers (from the organizations point of view)
