Be part of the VOLT community and convert your energy to a good cause.

The VOLT Volunteer Fair is returning to snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara College’s Main Vancouver campus in January 2023. Since 2009, the VOLT Volunteer Fair has been connecting students with charities, not-for-profit and public service organizations to explore and contribute to opportunities where they can make new connections, learn new skills, gain experience, and give back to the community.  

 

Theme for 2022/2023: Together, we can grow.

The VOLT Volunteer theme for 2022/23 is: Together, we can grow. Volunteering brings people and communities together. It provides people with the opportunity to give a little bit of their time in order to help others and in doing so, provide much needed support so that not-for-profit, charitable organizations and public service organizations are able to fulfil their missions. 

Just as a little seed can grow into a beautiful tree with some water, time and attention, volunteering is a rewarding passion. Through time, support and guidance, it encourages us to learn, grow and develop as people. It is through these experiences that we can create stronger communities and contribute to meaningful change in society. 

Together, through volunteering, we can grow.
