What People Are Saying

"For marginalized people, securing a volunteer position can be a challenge. The Access Program from Volunteer Victoria levels the playing field to a point where those-with-less can get a leg up in the community and demonstrate their suitability for gainful employment. These are all very good things!"

— Anawim House, Victoria BC

"Thank you very much for your support and help in this amazing area, :) your help and trust on me as a newcomer is overwhelming. Looking forward to have more opportunities to collaborate with you, I am really enjoying volunteering." "

— Carlos, a newcomer to Victoria
