Website offers vast variety of volunteer opportunities

By GILLIAN SLADE on October 10, 2019.

Donovan Nunweiler and Kaylee Malmberg look at the where volunteer opportunities all over the world are listed and now there is a Medicine Hat page.

There is now a website where volunteers can look for opportunities and charities and not-for-profit organizations can post their specific needs for volunteers. is a global website that was first established by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and recently a page for Medicine Hat was established.

“There is no religious content allowed and there is no agenda,” said Donovan Nunweiler, a member of the local committee, who says it will not generate any contact from the church. “We want the community to come together. People in the community may want to volunteer but don’t know where to go.”

On the website you can choose the community or city you are interested in. There are specific projects or ongoing opportunities. An additional click reveals more details, and contact can be made directly with the organization needing volunteers. It is a way to make people aware of opportunities to help those in need and even help to improve their quality of life.

There is also an option to list the type of volunteer opportunities you are interested in along with your email address and whenever a new opportunity is posted, an email will be generated to notify you.

You may be planning a trip and would be interested in volunteer work at your destination. The website offers the option of searching for volunteer listings that are available at your destination.

It will be a tool in a time of crisis, such as after a flood where a large quantity of volunteers are needed quickly, said Nunweiler.

The motivation for establishing the website was because of the example of Jesus Christ and his example of selfless service, said Nunweiler.

“JustServe is a service to help link community volunteer needs with volunteers and does not discriminate based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation in posting projects or in encouraging volunteers to serve according to our guidelines,” states the website.

The Medicine Hat page is still in its early stages of development. Kaylee Malmberg, says the local committee has been specifically approaching organizations, not-for-profits, charities and churches to make them aware of the opportunity to have a posting on the website.

The goal is for the community to “self-post” their opportunities for volunteers and for the service to be on auto-pilot, said Malmberg.

Nunweiler says no political content is allowed.

“When you serve others you often get more in return,” said Nunweiler.

Ik zou graag als vrijwilliger willen werken, omdat ik zo iemand kan helpen in zijn / haar moeilijke situatie. Ik ben erg blij om te zien dat deze website veel kansen heeft om een vrijwilliger te worden die er ook goed uitziet. Ik denk dat het helpen van iemand onze zonden kan verminderen, dus we moeten dit onze eerste prioriteit maken om mensen om ons heen te helpen die hulpeloos zijn.

It happens very often. We even wrote a course on the subject of bugs with sites. It’s very difficult to define it right away, so a bug may remain invisible. But fortunately, later I was told by my friends and acquaintances where to go with these difficult questions. Fortunately, I was already able to find useful information only when I asked these specialists for help and helped me to solve this difficult problem. I hope that everything has worked out for you too. I think it is more important than ever and everyone should understand it.
