We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of volunteerism by providing ongoing support and encouragement to individuals and to member agencies in their development and operation of effective volunteer programs in our community.

Our Organization

Established in 1988, the Campbell River Volunteer Society has grown and flourished from someone answering a telephone in their home to a vibrant, community non-profit agency that supports over 100 organizations.

Volunteer Campbell River has two main streams of focus: volunteer and community engagement through programs and training and non-profit support for organizations in the Campbell River region.
