David - ECVO Volunteer

Volunteering is the happiest three hours of my week – every week! Currently I teach ESL classes at Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers. It’s not just about language I also introduce newcomers to the customs in Canada. This is not my first volunteer role. A few years ago I went to India for four months with One International. We taught informal school curriculum to street children in Mumbai. I volunteer because I feel privileged to have safety and the freedom to choose how I want to live. I’ve got free time. Why watch Netflix every day when you can go out and do something to help another human being?
