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.
Help the city you’re a part of by volunteering at the City of Surrey. The volunteers here are given all kinds of exposure around the community, from dog walking to face paintings, from registering guests at different event settings to helping to support people who must evacuate their homes, and more. With so many different volunteer opportunities, you are sure to find a good fit for your skills and interests. Find out how here.
The in-school mentoring volunteer program organized by Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver will have you re-experiencing your good old school days while you make a positive contribution in the community. This opportunity focuses on providing one-on-one mentoring experiences where you are matched with a “little buddy,” a grade 1-7 elementary student. Reliability, consistency, dedication, and respect for others are all the skills you need to get started here, today.
Embark on a rewarding journey with Green Chair Recycling for a better tomorrow. By focusing on minimizing our collective environmental impact, contributing to this organization is one step towards making the world a better place. Find more information about this opportunity here.
