VPIA welcomes applications to volunteer with our Association. Available positions will be posted on this page so check back regularly. In addition if board and committee positions don't appeal to you, but you would like to be of service to VPIA as a project/task volunteer, offering a specific skill such as editing, design, data entry, etc, we would also love to receive a volunteer application from you.
To let us know you are interested please click the icon to the right and complete the general volunteer application form. Following receipt of your application we will contact you to arrange an introductory interview.
VPIA adheres to The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement which can be read by clicking the icon to the right. All VPIA volunteers will receive an orientation to VPIA policy and procedures, support systems and training and development opportunities.
Kind words from our clients and sponsors
“What a gift you are to me personally, to my family, to my community, to this nation, to this world. You lit my flame from your own, and that spark will continue to spread light in others - for eternity.
What courage I have, because of your courage.
What passion I feel, because of your passion.
What hope I know, because of your hope.
What grace I live, because of your grace.
You took your thoughts from conversation to reality, devoted the past 20 years to nurture and develop it and gifted it to the world with pure love, honour and trust.
~ Bless You ~ Thank You ~ Namaste ~”
Barbara Mackenzie, Fathering Involvement Initiative, Canada
“Your sense of grace. Your mission of peace. Your idealism and courage and generosity of spirit, beautifully wrapped within a countenace of humility and thankfulness. Your words into deeds. Your seemingly tireless approach to this noble work.
I remember asking you in Truro "What is your business model?" Your answer gave clarity for me, on my own path... inspiration. It is your approach to service and the sacred, your marriage of work and joyfulness, your initiative and willingness to be "on the front lines".... these are things of which I marvel. “
Barry Green, Newfoundland, Canada, Master Facilitator
“I honor you for hearing the "call" of our time, creating a clear mission and acting upon you vision with such devotion. In doing so you are among that special circle of people who recognize the transformative energy of the time in which they live and take action to use that energy to raise our human family to a new level of maturity. I am very grateful to witness your vision develop and grow and cheer you on every step of the way.”
Evelyn Belzer, Illinois educator
“Who are these people?
Who are so full of grace
Who diligently and enthusiastically
Share their gifts with the world
And who see the potential in everyone they meet.
What a joy
What a privilege
To encounter their wisdom
Linda Walker, USA, Facilitator
“I have always loved making a difference to people, encouraging my students to be the best they can be, and sharing my journey with others. The Virtues Project and A Pace of Grace are the best vehicles I have found for doing these things. Most of my life I wanted to be profound but The Virtues Project taught me that life is not about being profound and fixing others; it is about journeying together; discerning my own holy ground; and offering companioning to others, trusting them to find their own solutions. Thank you Linda, Dan and John for a great gift and the freedom to share it in ways that work for us. I am loving this focus for my retirement.”
