- Targeted emails to VBY’s Volunteer Database, which contains 302 potential volunteers!
- Weekly Time to Give segment on CBC North 94.5 FM (Thursdays after the 12:40 pm news)

Rural Non-profit agencies: VBY can help non-profits located in Yukon communities by using:
- Active in Your Community (Yukon News)
- YuWIN’s website
- Youth Volunteer Portal
- VBY’s website, Twitter account, and Facebook page
If needed for your organisation’s reporting or for other purposes, VBY can indicate:
- The number of people who opened the VBY email about your volunteer opportunity
- The number of people who viewed your volunteer opportunity on YuWIN’s website
- Volunteers’ satisfaction level with VBY’s volunteer matching system — 2011 statistics
Bonus: Promoting your volunteer opportunities through VBY also allows your organisation to promote its public events, its programs and services, its mission and vision, and more. All you need to do is insert an extra message when you send us your volunteer opportunities.
In return VBY asks that all organisations using our services become a VBY member:
Volunteer Canada and Volunteer Bénévoles Yukon are very excited to share with you that the new Canada Service Corps has launched! This initiative will provide a number of ways for youth and others to engage in service to their communities, including an online volunteer matching platform.
Learn more about the Canada Service Corps and the new volunteer matching platform, or learn more about the Canada Service Corps: www.canada.ca/canadaservicecorps.
This platform will enable young Canadians to find and be matched with volunteer opportunities locally and across the country!
There is funding available for Non-Profit Organisations for youth-serving projects.
