There are a few reasons why I choose to volunteer my time, and they’re all fairly simple. I like helping people, giving back to others, and it just seems like the right thing to do as a responsible citizen. Not only do I get to help individuals achieve their goals, I get to meet different people from all walks of life. Many of those people find themselves inspired by our work, and that leads them to get involved. As volunteers, we share our knowledge, experience, and expertise. I’ve volunteered all over the world, it builds bridges and, in my opinion, there is nothing more Canadian.
