Daniel - ECVO Volunteer

I started volunteering in university, and my reasons were selfish. There was a lot of pressure to get experience to add to your resume. Now I do it because I love being involved in my community and a part of something meaningful. I volunteer with Chimo Youth Retreat Centre where I organize an outdoor recreation program and I tutor refugee children once a week as a volunteer with Catholic Social Services. Volunteering is a great habit for life. It expands your social network, builds experience for a career and makes you part of something bigger. My advice is … just do it! Once you do, you’ll never look back.
