Event Description

The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) was created by Volunteer Canada to support organizations that engage volunteers. 

The CCVI is a guide for involving volunteers in all levels of an organization and it aims to improve volunteer involvement across the country. An updated version of the CCVI was released in November 2017 and through a project partnership with the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network, training is being offered across the province on the new standards. 

The CCVI clearly states the values and benefits of volunteer involvement. It provides a framework for discussion and decision-making within organizations. It also promotes meaningful volunteer involvement that meets the needs of both the organization and its volunteers.

Target Audience: Volunteer managers, coordinators, board members and anyone interested in learning more about the Canadian Code of Volunteer Involvement

Investment: No fee to attend, however you need to take a moment to apply for training subsidy through OVCN as per their funder here 

About the Presenter:
Sammy Feilchenfeld, B.A., B.Ed.
Training Specialist at Volunteer Toronto 

With a diverse background in education, dramatic arts and non-profit work, Sammy brings a varied perspective to training, community support and third-person summary writing. He is an advocate for online learning and continuing professional development as a means for individuals to grow, learn and enhance their trade. 

Sammy's Cultural Studies and Education degrees have guided his career trajectory has spanned theatre production (Three Peasants Theatre), technology sales (Apple Inc.), camping industry support (Centre Camp), human rights program management (Egale Canada Human Rights Trust) and non-profit adult education and training (Volunteer Toronto). Throughout all of these endeavours, Sammy's passion for the arts, human rights, youth engagement and technology have guided him towards becoming a self-taught website developer, graphic designer, curriculum planner and highly self-critical playwright. 

While this mix of opportunities has carved a career path distinct from his Intermediate/Secondary Dramatic Arts and English Bachelor of Education degree, Sammy's passion for learning has never waned and he remains dedicated to the continued pursuit of knowledge - for both himself and his diverse learners in the online and in-person training world.
