Volunteering at the SVCHC
Volunteers are an important part of the SVCHC team. As such, it is recognized that the best way for the Centre to achieve its goals is through the active collaboration and teamwork of salaried staff and volunteer citizens in the community.
Working together, the entire team increases its footprint to offer a larger number of programs and services to support the health and wellbeing of local people. In short, the ultimate goal of volunteer services is to provide a rewarding volunteer experience while striving to fulfill the organization’s mission.
