I want to set-up a volunteer centre. Where do I start?

Contact Volunteer BC and we can offer guidance/resources. Go to our Volunteer BC Resources Page to find our handbook designed to take you through a step by step process in establishing a volunteer centre.

Funding is sometimes offered on a project by project basis. When Volunteer BC receives funding to deliver workshops or pilot projects, volunteer centres are our partners of choice. Become a member to find out about these opportunities first. We also offer travel subsidies to volunteer centre staff who need financial support to attend our Volunteer Futures conference, as funds allow.

I have large group of volunteers where can I volunteer?

Finding volunteer positions for a large group takes time to plan. Contact your local volunteer centre or non-profit organization well in advance so they can find the ideal role(s) for your group. You may wish to consider funding costs of staff time and materials incurred by the non-profit to ensure your work has the biggest possible impact on the cause with the least impact on the non-profit’s resources.

I want to take a course/be certified in Volunteer Management

There are many options.
