The Voice of Volunteerism in BC

Meet Volunteer BC
Volunteer BC works to raise the profile of volunteering, encourage investment in volunteer engagement and link the network of volunteer centres.

Volunteer BC is the voice of volunteerism with the goal of promoting the value of volunteerism and building healthy BC Communities.

BC Volunteer Centres

How can we help?

Our programs help British Columbians mobilize their talents as volunteers, offer education opportunities, provide useful tools and ways to address critical community needs.

Volunteer Futures

Annual 2-day event for anyone interested in learning more about volunteerism and the voluntary sector. Find out what’s happening across BC and meet like-minded people and learn!

Training & Workshops

We take local training province-wide, offer a calendar of all sector training, and operate the Culturally Welcoming Volunteer Program.


Provide resources and tools to support volunteers and your impact. Our Connector Newsletter offers up to date volunteering and volunteer sector news.

National Volunteer Week


National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank BC’s volunteers. Our annual photo contest showcases volunteers and helps tell the story of the importance of volunteers in BC.

Advocacy & Leadership

We work on behalf of all British Columbians to ensure volunteer-friendly public policy and funding. Help us be a stronger voice and become a Volunteer BC member.

Volunteer Centre Support

Volunteer Centres connect people to volunteer opportunities and organizations to volunteers. Connect with your local volunteer centre to find out more about what’s available in your community.
