Volunteer Your Time
Our value statement on Volunteerism:
CNIB Volunteers are a respected and integral part of the team, working together towards a common goal: to enrich and enhance the lives of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted.
Sharing their time and a wealth of knowledge, skills and abilities, volunteers are meaningfully engaged in leadership, client support, advocacy, public education, philanthropy and administration.
We recognize and embrace the contributions and impact of our volunteers.
Our flagship volunteer program is the Vision Mate program. Vision Mates provide one-on-one sighted assistance to people in their communities who are blind or partially sighted. To find out more, watch this short clip.
In 2014, we conducted a national volunteer satisfaction survey. Overall, 93% of survey respondents were satisfied with their volunteer experience. For more results, read the summary report and recommendations.
