National Volunteer Week

20160410_170550April 11, 2016 – “this week is National Volunteer Week, a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers for the selfless work they do to help those around them,” said the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau while making a statement on National Volunteer Week.

The theme for this year’s campaign—Volunteers are the roots of strong communities—recognizes that volunteers are at the heart of healthy and resilient communities and strong NFP organizations.

We each have the power to make the world a better place. We can help a senior citizen who can no longer drive, mentor a young person in an after-school program, or welcome Syrian refugees to their new country. Volunteers look for opportunities to contribute their time, passion, and skill to make a positive difference in the lives of others. They believe—and know—that better is always possible.

YPSWA joins Prime Minister Trudeau, in thanking all the volunteers, especially YPSWA volunteers, who every day accomplish extraordinary things and make Canada a great place to live.

Thank you.
