Who is Volunteer BC?

Volunteer BC is a provincial association of volunteer centres, other voluntary organizations and individuals working together to strengthen the growth and development of voluntary action in British Columbia.

Currently, there are over thirty volunteer centres in British Columbia, with several others in the development stage. These centres play a key role in promoting and supporting effective volunteering in our communities.

Volunteer centres work with a broad range of organizations across the voluntary sector including human and social services, health care, education, arts, sports and recreation. They provide recruitment, referral and support services to these organizations, disseminate information on volunteer management and programming, provide training for volunteers and managers of volunteers, and advocate on issues related to volunteerism and volunteer programs.
