Students who have a positive experience in school are more likely to complete high school and pursue post-secondary studies. You could be the positive influence that has a lasting impact on a child.

At the Ottawa Network for Education, we want to get acquainted with our volunteers and understand their motivation for volunteering. This helps us design a volunteer placement that matches each volunteer’s interests, and meets the needs of local students. There are many ways to get involved with ONFE.

Why Volunteer with ONFE?

Volunteer Story

Harry and Ty have been volunteering with JA Ottawa for three years through Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business. Volunteering with JA Ottawa has allowed them to apply their knowledge in a concrete manner while teaching young and eager minds: “It is really important and fulfilling for us to help make sure that students are prepared for the realities and challenges of post-secondary education.”

A child is waiting for a volunteer with your skills.
