Volunteer Policy

We welcome volunteer participation in many of our programs. There is a volunteer application package that we ask you to complete if you have an interest in working with us. Volunteers are valued as members of the CVCDA team, but are never substituted for paid staff.

Students and Parent Involvement

We welcome the opportunity to serve as a resource for practicum students from the Early Childhood Education and Human Service Worker programs at North Island College, and national and international universities around the world. Student interns are regarded as Child Development Association staff during their practicum.

Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in activities involving their children. If you wish to volunteer, please discuss your desire with a staff member.

Each year, for our major fundraiser, the Association hosts the annual Children’s Telethon that supports our services, and volunteers are welcomed to support the work of the Telethon Committee.

Parents are also encouraged to serve on the Joint Advisory Committee.
