Event description

Description

The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement is a guide for involving volunteers in all levels of an organization. It is adaptable to organizations of all sizes, and can help you design, implement, evaluate and enhance your volunteer program.

With the aim of improving volunteer involvement across Canada, the Code promotes meaningful engagement that meets the needs of both an organization and its volunteers. It highlights the rights and responsibilities of volunteers, helping foster a mutually beneficial relationship.

Initially developed in 2001, Volunteer Canada regularly updates the Code to reflect changes to legislation, demographics and volunteer engagement. Last year, Volunteer Canada streamlined the standards of practice for volunteer involvement, bringing them down from 14 to 10.

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.

About the facilitator:

She has over 20 years experience in the non profit sector, and for the last 6 years has been coaching individuals, and facilitating workshops. Tracey has a Leisure Services BA from UVIC and a Certificate Executive Coaching from Royal Roads University.
