Special Olympics BC is thrilled to introduce a new Volunteer Professional Development Series! We want to thank the remarkable administrative volunteers who do so much to make SOBC programs possible, and create opportunities for these amazing individuals to connect, learn, and brainstorm together.
The series of webinars will cover a range of topics, and SOBC would really love to hear feedback from volunteers on topics you would like the series to cover. To share your thoughts, please contact your Region's Community Development Coordinator.
Upon initial registration for any of the sessions in the Volunteer Professional Development Series, registrants will receive a virtual event kit! Additionally, participants who attend these virtual sessions will be entered into a randomized draw to receive gift cards, prizes, and more!
