There are many ways to assist your community; I feel that sometimes certain endeavors get forgotten. I volunteer with The Learning Centre, to assist with adult literacy. All Canadians deserve literacy skills, and the opportunity to meet their educational goals – whether that be reading the bus schedule or getting their GED. Literacy promotes a positive impact on our city. The people I meet are some of the most wonderful people I know, and my life is better because of them. There are thousands of causes to get involved with across the country, and when you do, it shows those around you that Canada cares. I believe volunteers are at the heart of representing the world’s view of Canadians.
