Faiza Venzant



Executive Director

Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration


From a young age, Faiza’s parents instilled a strong sense of volunteerism in herself and her two older brothers. As immigrants to Canada from Uganda in the early 70s, their transition was successful due to a generous community of volunteers.   A volunteer herself from a very young age, Faiza has been an advocate for volunteer engagement and excellence in volunteer management for over 20 years.  As a facilitator for the Community Action Poverty Simulation, she is passionate about equity and access to volunteerism. 

Faiza immigrated to the United States in 2021 and serves as Executive Director with the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration and an active member and volunteer with Association for Leaders in Volunteer Engagement (AL!VE.) She has been a CVA (Certified in Volunteer Administration) since 2016. 

In 2018, Faiza published her first children’s book entitled, My Mamma Wants to Eat Me Up!  As a mother of two young boys, she has not actually eaten any of her children.
