Volunteers Make an Impact

Kate Phelps is the executive director of Her International and she knows first-hand what an amazing organization this is to volunteer for as she herself started as a volunteer on its Board.

Her International’s Mission is to Empower HER through education. It was founded in 2005 to offer education programs for women and girls both locally in Canada and globally through programs in Nepal. The programs facilitate self-reliance and connect women with the innate power within themselves to lead to greater confidence, capacity, and to thrive.

Volunteers can make an impact with Her International by helping with local events and social enterprise projects. They also have a lot of virtual opportunities, including helping with social media, marketing, programming, fundraising and being on the Board of Directors.

The Okanagan Volunteer Fair that originally connected Kate to Her International is holding its 24th annual edition on Saturday, September 18th at Parkinson Recreation Centre.

The VolunteerConnector helps volunteers find their passion and impact areas. To sign up, contact Emily at KCR Community Resources (emily@kcr.ca). To meet with organizations and learn about their programs come to the Okanagan Volunteer Fair on September 18, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, at Parkinson Recreation Centre.
