Become a Volunteer
Volunteers work with Board members taking on various tasks from promotion, fund raising, events and special projects or programs. Volunteers are not society directors and do not have to attend Board meetings.
Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers Society is a non-profit community crime fighting organization. We are currently looking to establish a volunteer base to help our program. We also require a volunteer coordinator to liaise with the board.
Volunteers are required for fundraising, community events, and certain areas of expertise. Grant funding application writing is one area that we require assistance.
If you are interested in reducing crime to make the Okanagan a safer place, please contact our office @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Join the Board
Board members are both Directors and Volunteers. The Board of Directors decide on policy, procedure and standards for program operation. The Board is also responsible for fund raising, promotion and education. Board members volunteer time as Committee Chairs and at various events, presentations, speeches and meetings as needed.
Note: all Board members and Volunteers must undergo criminal record and background checks before being considered.
