An overview of PREB-Ontario
The new PREB-Ontario system means that people who develop, grow or showcase their skills while volunteering can now receive a certificate created to meet their needs.
The Hon. Michael Coteau, Minister Responsible for the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games launched this new skills-based volunteer recognition system in Toronto on April 14, 2015 as a legacy project of the games.
A new skills-based era in volunteer recognition
Voluntary organizations can now move beyond the traditional ways of thanking and recognizing volunteers.
Now volunteers can receive a PREB certificate that lists the tasks and skills they used as a volunteer. They also detail key aspects of a volunteer’s experience, such as hours of volunteering completed, activities performed, special achievements or training obtained and special comments by supervisors.
Who needs to know about PREB certificates?
Everyone! But some people may be in a situation where they are more likely to benefit from having a PREB certificate. For example:
We anticipate anyone looking to advance their careers can benefit from having a certificate especially newcomers to Canada or anyone looking to take their career in a new direction. Youth can benefit when they are striving for their goals.
Employers and people involved in education need to know how PREB certificates can assist their decision-making and help students.
Voluntary organizations need to know about how this new era in volunteer recognition can help them attract volunteers.
