Welcome to Volunteer Cowichan
Volunteering is a fundamental act of citizenship and philanthropy in our society. It is offering time, energy, and skill of one's own free will. Volunteers impact virtually every aspect of society including health, education, social services, youth, sports and recreation, culture, the arts and the environment.
Volunteer Cowichan raises awareness of the power of service, encourages people to volunteer, provides information about volunteerism and recognizes the contribution of volunteers.
