The Resource Centre has announced the launch of Volunteer Sunshine Coast, a new Coast-wide program that aims to help build capacity and sustainability of not-for-profit organizations and social enterprises and support the growing demand for skilled knowledge volunteers.
“We have partnered with Vantage Point, formerly Volunteer BC, to provide our members access to GoVolunteer, an online portal for posting and finding volunteer opportunities,” the Resource Centre said in a news release announcing the new program.
“We will continue to promote and enhance knowledge philanthropy, the gifting of knowledge and expertise, in areas key to the success of the non-profit/social enterprise and volunteer sector through workshops and events and a consulting and mentorship service.”
The organization thanked the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation, District of Sechelt and New Horizons for Seniors Program for their support to undergo the re-envisioning, building and launch of the new program over the past year.
Those interested in Volunteer Sunshine Coast are being asked to:
• Become a founding sponsor or member for this new program during its 2019 membership drive.
• Save Jan. 23, 2019 to attend the Volunteer Sunshine Coast launch event, which will be held at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall.
