Abstract: The Voluntary Resource Council (VRC), founded in 1978, promotes the strengthening of the voluntary movement in Prince Edward Island. Committed to citizen participation through voluntary involvement, the Council works to: promote and improve communications and cooperation among non-profit voluntary organizations in Prince Edward Island; provide services and facilities and coordinate programs for such organizations; study and promote volunteerism throughout the province; assist voluntary organizations in their development.
Approximately fifty organizations are members of VRC; some groups are concerned with social change issues - others relate to social service concerns in P.E.I. Some of these groups are housed together at the above address. VRC publishes a monthly newsletter entitled "Networking."
