Volunteers Part of a Ripple Effect

National Volunteer Week encourages people to take action in their communities

National Volunteer Week, which takes place April 12-18 is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the centre of social change “discovering and demonstrating their collective power to make a difference.

North Island Crisis & Counselling Centre Society joins other agencies and organizations in celebrating the 13.3 million Canadian volunteers who are dedicated to proving to the nation that by working together, we have the strength to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.

National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. This year marks the 41st anniversary of National Volunteer Week. The theme this year is that “volunteers are part of the ripple effect.”

For 33 years, North Island Crisis & Counselling Centre Society programs have been delivered in diverse ways to best suit the needs of those they serve, and in a variety of locations.

These services are professional, prompt, confidential and are provided free of charge to individuals, families, children and youth.

Our volunteers make a difference in their communities through their positions with the Crisis Line, Better at Home, Hospice, Family Support and Forms Assistance For Seniors programs.

These programs have a great impact in the Mount Waddington Region.

NICCCS would like to send out a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of its amazing volunteers who assist them with providing services and supports for the North Island.

“You are truly a part of the ripple effect that illustrates how one act of kindness can change lives.”

North Island Crisis & Counselling Centre Society is always looking for new volunteers and ways to expand its volunteer program.

For more information, or if you are interested in becoming one of NICCCS’s amazing volunteers please contact: Michele Dorsey, coordinator of volunteer resources by phoning (250) 949-8333 or emailing volcoord@nicccs.org.
