National Volunteer Week 2018

April 15-21, 2018

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers.

This year's theme is: “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community”.
Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering is that it creates social and economic value for all.

 

Educational Sessions for Seniors

New Horizon Grant for Educational Sessions for Seniors came to the end, but there are still some sessions available. Movement Exercises for Seniors at Yoga and Wellness Center at 202 6750 WestCoast Road were so popular that we decided to continue.
