Volunteer Screening Program
One of the most important aspects of any nonprofit organization’s work is engaging volunteers and inspiring citizen participation. Volunteer screening is critical to the success and safety of volunteerism in Alberta.
The Volunteer Screening Program (VSP) is designed to meet the needs of nonprofit organizations across Alberta. Volunteer screening includes the process of screening volunteers, strategies for volunteer recruitment and retention, the assessment of risk, and the development of policies that enable participation and address safety concerns.
The VSP supports nonprofit professionals in implementing effective volunteer screening practices in their organizations. The program will help to maximize the great work already being done and will help to enhance volunteer engagement strategies by supporting the development of deeper understanding of volunteer screening practices.
