I am volunteering with Global Fusion. I’m really drawn to it because of our focus on youth showcasing their culture. As young people become more familiar with western culture there can be some detachment, so with that in mind, I feel volunteering for an event like this is very important. The youth of today get a bit of a bad rap, but they’re not lazy and disengaged. An event like this, with all the youth involved, is proof. Volunteering makes our community, and Canada, better because it empowers! Everybody likes to contribute and feel like the things he or she can do make a difference. Young people get to see the results of their efforts!
