Who We Are
2000+ members - 150+ schools -160+ events
Project 5K is a non-profit organization created by youths for youths. The founders of Project 5K noticed that many youths want to volunteer, but they don't know where to volunteer. At the same time, there are many events who don't have enough volunteers.
That's the reason why Project 5K started, we aim to make volunteering opportunities more easily accessible for youths and connect them to various enjoyable volunteer opportunities to make their community a better place. By signing up for Project 5K, you get volunteering opportunities directly to your email and we make the sign up process both simple and efficient for both our volunteers and our event partners.
Making A Difference
With this initiative, Project 5K organizes and hosts volunteer events that directly give back to the community. Our annual Operation Rudolph and Thanksgiving events provide a platform for volunteers to create and distribute care packages for the less fortunate in Toronto.
We connect students looking to volunteer with events in need of more volunteers. Our aim is to expose students to the joys of volunteering by providing them with enjoyable, high-impact work.
Are you an event organizer in need of volunteers to help with your events? We are looking to build long-term, sustainable community partnerships to provide more opportunities for our members.
