“I stumbled across AVR-SK while looking for information about volunteering in Saskatchewan. The first thing that caught my eye was the development day theme of New Canadians as Volunteers. Being new into a job that involves volunteer recruitment, management and retention, I was interested in any opportunities I could pursue to gain more knowledge that could help me in my job. Little did I know this day would provide me with more then information about new Canadians as volunteers! Throughout the day, I realized what an amazing group this was! I met people who have been working in the industry for years and are willing to share their experiences as well as new to the industry individuals like myself who are navigating volunteer recruitment. Our conversations throughout the day ranged from job titles and responsibilities, recruitment strategies, volunteer training, liability surrounding criminal record checks and of course, getting to know one another. This group is full of friendly, welcoming individuals who are amazing resources. Being a volunteer supervisor or manager can be a bumpy road as you are figuring things out in your new position and knowing that I can communicate with individuals that may have been or are currently stuck at the same bump in the road makes me feel supported and gives me a sense that I have a resource to help me problem solve. All I can say is that I wish I had known about this group in university as a student volunteer! Thank goodness it’s never too late!
