Provincial Consultation: Volunteer Recruitment and Retention in the CBSS Sector - adapting to a changing landscape - June 22nd, 2022

From United Way
Date & Time
Organized by
United Way British Columbia

Volunteers are essential to organizations that provide programs and services for seniors in our communities. Many volunteers are seniors themselves, whose contribution of time, knowledge, and experience are not only beneficial to their community, but also to their own well-being. Although various aspects of volunteerism have seen significant change over the past twenty years, in the past two years, the COVID pandemic has dramatically affected the need for volunteers, their availability, their roles, and their engagement.

This Consultation will bring together staff and volunteers from the community-based seniors serving (CBSS) sector and partner organizations from throughout B.C. to:
• share current effective volunteer recruitment and retention strategies, tools, and resources in the CBSS sector
• consider challenges and gaps that need to be addressed
• explore ideas and opportunities for initiatives and activities aimed at supporting and advancing volunteerism and volunteer management in CBSS organizations
