Members represent the diversity of Aboriginal people in Canada. They are consulted about major changes in our mission and goals. Members attend general meetings and provide input to the stewardship of the organization. Members elect the board of directors, and only Members can serve as Directors. Plus, members are provided with advance notice of special events. Full membership in the society is open to people of Aboriginal ancestry who are interested in the education of Aboriginal community members. Affiliate membership is available to all community members and partners. Affiliate members do not vote, but are consulted and included in setting the direction of programs and services. Supporting a nonprofit society can be a very satisfying way to support your community. Society members typically enjoy serving the community and they want to continue doing it. However, there are others who are not sure about joining a society or who need someone else to tell them why it makes sense. Here are some reasons why people join nonprofit societies: Members elect the Board of Directors from the membership. Only members can serve as Directors.

Volunteer

All Friendship Centres were founded by volunteers, by Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people working together to provide needed services. The movement is rooted in volunteerism and despite the rapid growth which most Centres have experienced in the past twenty years, they are still highly dependent on volunteers to provide much needed services. Volunteers play a particularly vital role in the areas of cultural and recreational activities for children and youth which form an essential part of Friendship Centre programming.
