|British Columbia Association of Professionals with Disabilities|
Our provincially incorporated non-profit was created by the sheer determination, commitment, and the volunteer efforts of a group of professionals with disabilities. Our highest priority was to create the society while listening to and engaging fellow professionals who all echoed the conviction that we need to "get on with it" or as one of our founders stated, "We have already had decades of discussion (in regards to employment and people with disabilities). If I can do something that will help fellow professionals with disabilities deal with the barriers that I have faced all my life, I'm happy to do it."
Please help us make a difference for professionals with disabilities. Your support will help professionals with disabilities to get beyond the 'decades of discussion' and take action to end their history of being under supported, underemployed, and excluded from the workforce.
You can start supporting us by spreading the word about our young non-profit. Also, if you are interested (or would like more information) in providing in-kind or financial support or participating as a volunteer, mentor, corporate, community, or public sponsor/partner, please contact us. We also have a donation form for those who would like to donate.
For your information, BCAPD is using the Canadian Association of Professionals with Disabilities discussion group as one means to find and work with committed professionals with disabilities and their supporters to take on active leadership and/or support roles to build a regional and provincial presence.
Volunteer opportunities vary and are dependant on the
regional and provincial needs at the time. Examples of opportunities may
be regional group leader, board members, marketing, communications, journalism,
list manager, event coordinator, funding, legal, accounting, human resources,
volunteer management, special projects, committee work, membership, board
resource committee, knowledge/info acquisition, advocacy, organizational
development, strategic planning, administration, community liaison, tech
and/or website development, and management, ad-hoc/advisory committees,
and on-call volunteering. If you know how you can support us, and the
opportunity is not listed here, please contact us. We welcome suggestions.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
