This year as we welcome spring and finally have restrictions lifting, Vancouver Career College is thrilled to share various organizations across the Lower Mainland where you can step up and explore different volunteer opportunities. We know that student life gets busy really quickly with submissions, assignments, and exams, but we encourage all you of to take a day or two away once in a while from jam-packed school deadlines to contribute to the volunteering events and activities happening around you. Have a look at the organizations below to find volunteering opportunities you can start at today.
