The South House is a volunteer driven organization. The centre would not exist without the time, energy, enthusiasm, creativity and dedication of the volunteers. At the same time, the centre is a space for volunteers to express themselves, to think critically about their beliefs and society, to learn and develop skills. The centre should provide volunteers with the resources and support needed to do this.
The relationship between volunteers and the centre as an organization is a reciprocal one. The centre will support and facilitate the efforts of the volunteers, and in turn, the volunteers are charged with maintaining and promoting the mandate and mission statement of the centre. This relationship allows volunteers a considerable amount of freedom in organizing events and in shaping the centre’s community. As a volunteer, the centre and its staff will help you realize your plans and goals for the community.
