Volunteer Orientation

Our goal is to provide you with the resources you need to be a successful Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia volunteer. We have developed an orientation for our volunteers in order to provide helpful information and training for volunteers stepping into their new roles.

The volunteer orientation includes:

  • Volunteer Guidelines: an overview of volunteering with us as well as helpful policies and procedures.
  • Welcome package with information pertaining to your new volunteer position and committee/group.
  • Casual mentor support.
  • Training on roles and responsibilities.
