Volunteer Campbell River is excited to announce the launching of the Good Deeds project, with support from the CR Mirror, City of Campbell River and Investors Group.
A volunteer will be highlighted in the CR Mirror monthly “Good Deeds” feature spotlight. This will include a picture, the organization that submitted the nomination, and the sharing of their “good deed”.

The organization that nominated the selected volunteer will receive a $200. Gift Certificate from the CR Mirror for a publicity campaign!
A short nomination process consisting of completing three questions is all it takes to nominate a volunteer!
Runner-ups will also be highlighted during the National Volunteer Week campaign (deadline of 9 am Monday, March 17th) and in future promotions as space permits.

Learning ObjectivesAbout the Topic
Volunteer managers in most organizations would be considered to be failing in their job if the numbers of volunteer hours goes down from one year to the next. In many cases, hours are looked at as time that would have had to have been paid for or as associated with services that would not have been delivered had the time not been volunteered. Both can be false assumptions. This workshop will demonstrate how the more-hours-the-better focus can actually devalue volunteers and how to use a new model that includes cash costs and the consumption of volunteer hours as inputs and accomplishments as outputs.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to …
- Define priorities for volunteer engagement that are aligned to the organization’s mission
- Calculate the return on investment of volunteer engagement based on outputs and strides toward mission goals rather than the simple sum total of volunteer hours
- Identify how common methods of reporting can lead to devaluing volunteers
- Monitor the performance of their engagement of volunteers for internal process improvements
