Support of Volunteers

As volunteers are the partners and masters of a volunteer centre, it is important to repeat that they are characterized by their complete freedom.

  • Freedom of choice of their field of action
  • Freedom as to the length of their commitment
  • Freedom to share their experiences and skills
  • Freedom in the clientele to assist and serve

With this perception, one can understand the full meaning of the voluntary commitment through the mission of a centre.

The support offered to volunteers focuses on cultivating their abilities and skills that are likely to further their autonomy, motivation and personal development.

The services offered to volunteers include:

  • Screening
  • Training
  • Direction toward the services offered by the centre or toward local agencies
  • Follow-up of their work

A volunteer application form has been created and is currently being used to register all volunteers for the CAB. As of March 31, 2018, there were 191 volunteers officially registered.

The long term goal will be to provide ongoing training and support to volunteers.

Goals established by the CABMN Board of Directors include:
-Improve the website to increase volunteer involvement,
-Better recognize the role and contribution of the volunteers, committees and chairpersons,
-Create an entente to sign with other groups requesting volunteers,
-Increase visibility.

 

With the creation of a volunteer data base, we have been able to provide support to internal and external organizations seeking volunteers.  Follow up with volunteers includes:
-Touch-base phone calls
-Feedback
-Statistics
-Recognition
