First Time Volunteer? What To Expect

The best part about volunteering is that you will have a chance to contribute to something you care deeply about. You will have an opportunity to use your skills in a meaningful way and meet new people who share your interests.

You have rights and responsibilities

Know the Code
The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement is a good place to learn about your role and the standards that non-profit organizations strive to uphold.

As a volunteer, you have the right to expect orientation and training, to give and to receive feedback, and to receive assignments that reflect the mission or purpose of the organization.

All I want to do is help, why do I have to be screened?
All organizations that provide programs to vulnerable people – like children, seniors or people with disabilities – whether run by staff or volunteers, have a responsibility to appropriately screen their volunteers.
