Ottawa Festivals is developing a new on-line volunteer tool to "enhance volunteering in Ottawa's festivals". The tool will help match people to their best position, create forums for volunteers to communicate and to share their experiences, and deliver workshops and seminars to develop volunteer skills and knowledge.

The group is looking for people who have already volunteered at local festivals to give it feedback in focus groups, starting this Wednesday evening (August 18). Refreshments provided. For more information, see .
