You're looking for a way to give back to an organization that addresses the pressing issues and challenges facing Greater Victoria. We'd love to have your help!
Here are some of the volunteer roles currently available at Leadership Victoria:
- Event Volunteers - We run three or four big events each year, ranging from the Victoria Leadership Awards in February, to our short workshops and appreciation events. We can always use help in planning & running these. Roles include coat-check, setting up and taking down displays, laying out printed material at tables, and much more!
- Mentorship - Each Community Leadership Development Program participant is matched with a community leader who imparts experience, expertise and shared values. Mentors are recruited and matched in the fall, and meet monthly (or as arranged with mentee) until the following September. We don't guarantee a mentor-mentee match to everyone who comes forward, as we have to match based on the needs of each year's participants. Check off this role if you want to be contacted when we are going to do a mentor intake.
- Program Committee Members - Our program is delivered by volunteers with professional expertise in leadership and facilitation. If you have these skills, we would love to talk to you about how you can contribute on an ongoing or one-off basis. Our Program Committee is currently full, but we will keep your information for future opportunities.
What You Can Expect from Leadership Victoria:
Leadership Victoria Society embraces volunteers as being fundamental to our vision, mission and very existence. You can expect that you will have a in-person or phone meeting with Leadership Victoria staff to determine your interests, capacity and availability. We will match you with a role that allows your interests and our needs to be mutually met. You can expect that we'll provide an orientation to your role and our organization; you'll meet other people passionate about community leadership; and you'll have an opportunity to do work that is meaningful to you and our organization. Leadership Victoria staff will provide you with feedback and give you a chance to give us feedback on our support of you as a volunteer.
