National Volunteer Screening and Education Centre – SurveyVolunteer Canada and Deloitte (with support from Public Safety Canada) have teamed up to develop a Feasibility Study and Business Model for a proposed National Volunteer Screening and Education Centre. As part of those efforts, we are releasing a National Volunteer Screening Survey to collect the raw data needed to understand this complex topic in the Canadian context.
The survey is intended for both nonprofit organizations as well as individual volunteers.
Feel free to share this information and the survey with your networks.

Five Ways Nonprofits can Impart Soft Skills to VolunteersA big part of retaining volunteers is finding new and innovative ways to engage them. By helping volunteers to develop soft skills, nonprofits can enrich volunteers’ experiences. Soft skills such as the ability to gel well in a team, make sound and/or quick decisions and communicate effectively are important for any nonprofit volunteer to successfully contribute to your organization’s cause, initiatives and activities.
