Volunteer Halton Youth Advisory Council 2013

CTW2013 getinvolved stamp en

The 2013 youth volunteer campaign has been extended to FOUR weeks (April 21 – May 20, 2013). Ontario students had more time and opportunities to volunteer in their communities.

ChangeTheWorld - Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is a call to action for youth aged 14 to 18 years to volunteer through a wide variety of exciting community initiatives with the objective to engage youth to volunteer for at least 3 hours over the 4 weeks campaign. Our goal is to help you get the community involvement hours you need to graduate high school.
Find your passion and get involved! Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned volunteer, the ChangeTheWorld campaign can help you be the difference.

THANK YOU and MERCI to our partners!
