This year as we welcome spring and finally have provincial restrictions lifting, Reeves College is thrilled to share a list of organizations where you can step up and explore opportunities to volunteer. We know that student life gets busy really quickly with submissions, assignments, and exams, but we encourage you to take a day or two away from school work and contribute to volunteering events and activities happening around you. Take a look at these organizations below, which all have volunteering opportunities you can start at today.
Mental health is as important as physical health. We should all encourage nurturing our well-being and help each other embrace calm. When volunteering at the Canadian Mental Health Association, you will have the opportunity to learn new skills and gain a better understanding of mental health while helping to build a more caring and supportive community. Take the first step in helping someone feel better today. Apply here.
With Volunteer Canada, the opportunities to help and reach out to different sectors of the community are endless. This organization gives you the support to volunteer in various fields to facilitate a better society for all. Volunteer Canada provides leadership and expert knowledge on volunteerism to increase the participation, quality, and diversity of volunteer experiences.

Giving your time and energy and sharing your skills is a gift that only you can give. These contributions become even bigger when the blood cancer community needs it now more than ever. Being a volunteer is not an easy job, but it is heartwarming and gives you a sense of accomplishment when you can put a smile on the faces of people affected by illness. By volunteering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, you can bring hope for a better tomorrow. Start here today.
