Volunteer Involvement

Volunteer Cowichan has adopted the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement  and requires its member agencies to adopt the Code as a standards document for their volunteer management programs.

The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement:

  •  provides voluntary and not-for-profit organizations with a philosophical framework for involving volunteers at the governance, leadership and direct service levels.
  • outlines the values, principles, and standards for effective volunteer practices within organizations.
  • includes the Organization Standards Checklist, which will assist organizations in evaluating and improving its volunteer programs.
