What defines a volunteer centre? / Qu’est-ce qui définit un centre d’action bénévole?

What’s in a name? That which we call a volunteer centre by any other name would smell as sweet.

It used to be that a volunteer centre was defined by its name; if you were a volunteer centre, you called yourself such. It wasn’t always consistent, but the word “volunteer” usually appeared. There are, however, organizations that perform the functions of a volunteer centre and are called something completely different – Community Link, Resource Centre, Community Services, etc.

Volunteer Canada created the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) in 2001 to support organizations that engage volunteers. The CCVI details standards of practice for engaging and managing volunteers effectively, and organizations are encouraged to adopt the standards at all levels.

From time to time, Volunteer Canada receives requests for posting volunteer opportunities on our website. While we thank you for thinking of us, we don’t match volunteers with volunteer opportunities; That’s something we leave to the expertise of local volunteer centres.

Volunteer centres work in local communities to strengthen volunteering and citizen engagement. With more than 200 in Canada, each volunteer centre’s name, size, structure and services reflect the unique characteristics of their community.

I want to focus on the unique qualities of founding and running one of Canada's 7,000+ campus clubs and how volunteer centres and non-profit organizations could learn from and engage them better.
