It was then a support program under the Office of the President that provides volunteer assistance to various institutions and community-based organizations. In 2005, it was placed under the ISAC.
Today, BVP provides the matching and bridging of technical expertise with need. Through volunteerism, individuals and groups share their talents, skills, and other resources with various institutions and communities that need a particular expertise. In the process, there is transference, improvement, sustained development, and transformation in both the volunteers who render service and the institutions and

• Short-Term Volunteer Program – BVP networks with various communities and other non-government organizations in Metro Manila that accept volunteers on short-term basis. Students and professionals can, depending on their availability, render regular volunteer work for a pre-arranged period of time. The office of the BVP makes special arrangements for those who volunteer on an individual or group basis to assist in the conduct of workshops and training, tutorials, catechism, counseling and other forms of short-term volunteer work in any of the partner communities of BVP.
