What counts as a volunteer hour at Vaughan PVA?
A volunteer hour is an hour of an individual’s time during which he or she represented the Vaughan PVA chapter or National PVA in the performance of a job, or by attendance at a meeting or event. The time counted is the time actually spent in the accomplishment of the mission. Reasonable time for travel to and from the location will also be allowed.
Note: Volunteer time is time given by a volunteer who does NOT receive wages (a stipend) from any organization, agency, or company for services provided for that time. Time spent PARTICIPATING in recreational events, (i.e., National Veterans Wheelchair Games, Trap Shoots, Bass Tournaments or other sporting events) will NOT count as volunteer hours. However, the time spent in the organization and supervision of such events may be counted.
Reminder: Each volunteer hour has to be reported on a volunteer's time sheet, program code and description needs to be use accordingly.
Where can I get and how do I submit a volunteer activity form?
Volunteer Activity Forms for new volunteers to sign up are available at the office as well as Volunteer Time Sheets for members to submit no later than the 10th of each month.
