"Volunteers are vital to the success of any sport event, and the BC Games are no exception," says Kelly Mann, president and CEO of the BC Games Society. The 2010 BC Summer Games will be held in Langley July 22 to 25. "The BC Games are important for our young, up and coming athletes, and they also bring enormous benefits to the host community. We couldn't do it without the volunteers."

VolWeb.ca is a website that connects volunteers with events in their community. It's free for both volunteers and event organizers, and registration is fast and easy. VolWeb.ca was created by 2010 Legacies Now, with support from the Province of British Columbia.

VolWeb.ca helps organizations that plan community events, like festivals, fundraisers and sport competitions. These organizations may not have an existing network of volunteers from which to draw, and potential volunteers may need a quick and simple way to find short-term opportunities that match their interests.

The organizers of the BC Summer Games are seeking volunteers for roles ranging from food services to medical assistance. "We're looking for volunteers who share our spirit and passion in making this event a huge success for our community," says Michael Jackstien, president of the Township of Langley 2010 BC Summer Games. You can find this event and more on VolWeb.ca.

VolWeb.ca is unique because you can search for events based on your community, skills and interests. You can also choose to receive automatic email updates when new events are added that match your profile.

By volunteering for one day or one weekend, you can contribute to the health of your community. You can also have fun, meet new people and gain new skills. The rewards are endless, and will stay with you long after the event is over.
