Volunteering

Volunteer Interests can range from anti-poverty missions to grand artistic ventures. To me it is a great way to spend spare time doing the things I already enjoy, for organizations and individuals that I believe in.

    Prior to High School I was involved with Scouts Canada projects in Welland which included helping at the Welland Food Fest in its first years. This was before the High School volunteer mandate was in place - younger residents were able to their part and get involved. Planted Trees with the DSBN when I was in Elementary school. Pretty much anything that sounded like a fun day and the work was respected. I didn't volunteer so that I could have this cool volunteer page - I did it because I wasn't busy and it seemed like more fun than sitting around.
