Another Volunteer Source for Langley Agencies
We are very pleased to announce the launch of The Langley Volunteer Bureau, dba ‘Langley Volunteers’, an independent, not-for profit society formed to promote the value of volunteering and to connect the volunteers in the community with the organizations who need them.
In the Spring of 2016, a Task Force was created by the Non-Profit Committee of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. After consultation with Langley Non-Profit organizations, volunteers and businesses the Task Force determined that it was time to initiate a Langley Volunteer Bureau:
“To support youth, families and seniors who want to be connected and involved in their neighbourhoods and bridge the divide of community outreach, providing non-profit agencies with access to committed individuals who can work together to make a real difference.”
Non-Profit Associations in Langley benefit greatly from volunteers and know the importance of how volunteers add to the success of their organization. Volunteer hours are valued and charitable organizations can use this as an estimate to quantify the enormous value volunteers provide.
We strive to provide fully qualified volunteers from day one. All potential volunteers are interviewed and encouraged to submit a criminal record check.
Langley Volunteers will be hosting on-going education and training session and will be out in the community actively promoting volunteering in Langley.
Please join us!
“Langley Lodge is very fortunate to have volunteers who choose to share their time with our elders on a regular basis. They can participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities, such as visiting, helping with activities, taking a resident out for a walk in the garden, escorting someone to a music concert in our Main Lounge, and helping with monthly birthday parties and afternoon tea. It is important support for our residents, many of whom can no longer get out to community social offerings.”
