Local Training Within Reach of Everyone
Whether you are already a volunteer, considering volunteerism in the Sooke Region, or even just plain curious, check out the local training being offered under the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre’s “Recruit, Retain and Retrain” project. The project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, and will not likely be this affordable again.
Free “Lunch and Learn” opportunities means this training fits everyone’s budget. Discounts are offered to Volunteer Centre members, with further discounts when 2 or more volunteers from a non-profit organization register for the same workshop. Travel subsidies are available for residents from Beecher Bay to Port Renfrew who are travelling 20 km or more. If there is enough interest we will bring training to the regional communities.
In addition to increasing the skills of existing volunteers, we are looking to engage people in new and improved ways. If you are not already volunteering, though have considered it, we want to know what is holding you back. Are there training or education opportunities you believe would give you the confidence to take action?
