  1. Helps you connect with others:  You meet like-minded and amazing people. You can start or continue building your network in Canada.
  2. It’s good for your mind and body: There is nothing better for mental health than helping others. In addition to that, you will learn new skills, learn about Canadian culture. Volunteers attend our workshops & events for free.
  3. It can advance your career: We have seen a lot of times our volunteers getting promoted faster, it makes sense, if you are practicing the skills of your next role it’s easier to explain in the interviews with real examples how you are doing it. Besides we are always happy to provide references and share your successes with us on LinkedIn.Also if you are new to Canada, it is a great way to acquire Canadian experience.
  4. It is fun and brings significance to your life: Helping people is not only fun but also recharges your soul. Using your wonderful skills to serve others is the key to success and significance.
