I volunteered as a study buddy in an elementary school helping grade 5 students with math. I volunteer because I like the feeling of doing good for others without expectation of repayment. Coming from a small town of under 1000 people, I volunteer to feel more connected to my community and its citizens. Volunteering makes Canada a better place because it helps reinforce the idea that humans are good. When people volunteer their time for one another, it connects the people in Canada and creates a giant intertwined community that supports one another.
