What is the VOLT program?
The VOLT program is dynamic and motivated community of student volunteers who bring a passion and desire to give back to the communities in which they live, work, study and play. As a registered member of VOLT, current Langara students can earn VOLT volunteer hours by volunteering in an on-campus role or off-campus role, providing it is with a not-for-profit, charitable organization or public service organization. After logging 50, 100 and 200 hours, VOLT volunteers can apply for recognition.
The VOLT Volunteer Program empowers students to connect with rewarding volunteer opportunities on campus and in the community. The program promotes community engagement, social awareness, and student development through volunteerism and can help you make new connections, learn new skills, gain experience, and give back to the community. We encourage you to convert your energy to a good cause.
