CPFA volunteer program is as old as the organization itself. Our volunteer program has been one of the most successful programs of the CPFA. Volunteers are the bedrock of the organization. CPFA relies on its volunteers in every facet of its provision regarding its services to the Community. There is no negating the fact that volunteers played a critical role in providing services to the newcomers and immigrants. In fact, volunteers have made an immeasurable difference in the lives of new comers in our community. Our volunteers are involved in various programs of the association such as the Job Search Workshops and Multicultural Settlement & Education Partnership. The volunteers have always supported and assisted with our activities and events. They have played an indispensable role in our fundraising activities. Also, they have been a part of the great success of our Access Centre. In addition to that, our volunteers have also contributed to the success of our interpretation services for community, especially for newcomers and immigrants from all walks of life.
Our program welcomes everyone to actively participate in it. Our volunteers are selected and screened based on their skills, qualities and needs. On the contrary, volunteers without skills and qualities are also accepted in our organization after a careful and thorough screening. Â Our volunteers are self-referrals, school placements, from Ontario works, and other organizations as well.
The Canada Pakistan Friendship Association has always welcomed volunteers from all walks of life and will continue to do the same. We will continue to support our volunteers to acquire the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to be employed within the Canadian workplace environment.
CPFA is proud of its volunteers for their time, experience, wisdom and patience they brought to the agency.
