Understanding the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement
May 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Candian Code for Volunteer Involvement was first launched in 2001 by Volunteer Canada as a part of the International Year of Volunteers. Over the last 17 years it has undergone revisions with the last one being in the fall of 2017.
Involving volunteers in a respectful, meaningful and inclusive way is the responsibility of everyone in your organization. The Code provides a road map for your organization to acknowledge volunteers as an important resource and treat them fairly and responsibly. This not about a law or a policy, the Code recognizes and reflects the changing realities of volunteer engagement and management practice, and supports the work of those who manage and support volunteer involvement within an organization;it is designed to be inclusive and accessbile to a diversity of people, cultures, communities, opportunities and approaches.
At the end of this workshop particpants will have an understanding of the Code of Conduct for Volunteer Involvement and feel supported to implement any aspect to their volunteer program.
This workshop is for:
Volunteer Managers as well as other staff, leaders and Board members from non-profit organizations. While some of the material is specific to and focused on volunteer management, the CCVI can play a meaningful role in shaping a non-profits’s success, community engagement and growth.
