Volunteer BC News

As we look back upon 2023, Volunteer BC would like to thank everyone who supported us during challenging times. We hope you found the time to recharge over the holidays. The new year is for new beginnings! Let’s kick off the year and start off strong with our latest blog post on volunteering, the latest trends, news and training.

“Volunteering can be a rewarding experience on so many levels. It can draw you into a community of like-minded folks dedicated to giving back to an idea, cause, or need. Consider a one-time commitment, short-term, long-term, or whatever works for you. Welcome the new year by volunteering for something that touches your heart. ”
 Anne-Marie Koeppen, President, Volunteer BC

To better serve our stakeholders, we are pleased to launch our new website and introduce a fresh new look for the new year!

We re-designed it to incorporate a more consistent brand and include up to date images from our National Volunteer Week Photo Contest. Explore the new home pageresourcesI want to Volunteer, and other newly designed pages.
