NVSSN at a Glance

History of the NVSSN

The purpose of our first year developmental initiative (2014-2015) was two-fold:

  1.  to create opportunities for dialogue about voluntary sector studies among diverse groups both on and off campus and;
  2.  to advance the implementation of both scholarly and practical programs. 

This initiative has been shaped by numerous one-on-one and group conversations and meetings since November 2013 when a “preliminary ideas” draft was circulated at Luther College at the University of Regina. During the 2014-2015 “seed” year, the initiative was led by a process facilitator who is an expert in the voluntary sector with the primary responsibility of creating opportunities for constructive dialogue and collective developmental work.
 

Who benefits from the NVSSN? 

The following groups of people will benefit:

  • A diversity of undergraduate students studying in many different disciplines benefit because voluntary organizations exist across numerous disciplines; for example, Engineers Without Borders, Museums Association of Saskatchewan, Nature Conservancy of Canada, Saskatoon Food Bank, Al Ritchie Community Association, and Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations.
  • People who have already graduated and are now working and/or volunteering in the voluntary sector or in the government sector and are interested in upgrading their knowledge and skills will enrol in courses.
  • People who have retired and are currently running programs as volunteers.
  • Faculty and staff on campus who want to challenge themselves to learn new ways of thinking about old problems and new teaching skills.
     

Community Initiatives Fund  

NVSSN will greatly benefit from a renewed Community Initiatives Fund grant worth $217,200 to implement an innovative 2017-2019 NVSSN Action Plan. Read more about the impact this grant will have on the NVSSN here.
