The Vanier Community Service Centre (VCSC) promotes the participation of residents in the community development field in order to help develop a Volunteer Resource Program. The Centre recognizes and encourages the important role of all volunteers.
Volunteers constitute an important link as well as human resources for the VCSC.
Volunteers on their part, promote the Centre’s various programs by their community participation.
Volunteers play an important role by contributing to the daily flow and the success of the Centre’s activities. The Volunteer Resources Coordinator manages the program by handling promotion, recruitment, screening and Volunteer acknowledgment.
