The Volunteer Gateway portal exists to encourage participation in volunteer opportunities in order to assist others in their goal to make a difference (not just in the lives of others but in theirs as well).
It delivers a sense of pride and inclusiveness in volunteerism, targeting those people who claim “I Want to Contribute; I Want to Belong; I Want to be Engaged; but I need more! To learn new things, meet new people…and explore my full potential!”
From these ideals, SPARK ONTARIO was born… as a different way to ignite imagination and possibilities. All it takes is a spark…and a familiar message that can quickly resonate with its audience:
Inspiration Starts Here…In the igniting of passion and the spark of excitement…
