I volunteer with groups that I believe truly give something back to our community. When you realize just how much many organizations rely on volunteers you really get a sense of belonging and a sense of the bigger picture! The educational aspect to volunteerism is also unbelievable. I think I’ve learned more while volunteering than I ever did in high school or university; there are just so many types of people out there, and you cross so many different paths. You can’t help but learn from those around you. The work I do, or any volunteer for that matter, feels very Canadian. We work to make our community stronger, and everyone benefits when that happens.
