The 3rd Annual V-Oscars

The premiere volunteer recognition event in Peel returns on Thursday, April 19, 2018! We believe volunteer recognition is a pillar of good volunteer engagement, which adds value to a volunteer experience and inspires others. While volunteer recognition takes many forms, the V-Oscars presents a unique opportunity for Volunteer MBC member organizations to show how much they appreciate their outstanding volunteers and give them an experience unlike any other.

From February 14 – March 23, Volunteer MBC Member Organizations submit nominations to be considered by the Judging Committee.
