In recognition of the tremendous support that Canadians provide when volunteering as a family unit, Volunteer Canada has recently launched new tools for family volunteering. Whether you are looking to incorporate Family Volunteering into your organization or business or whether you are an individual looking to find ways to contribute to your community while spending time with your family, getting involved is a rewarding experience. Check out the Volunteer Canada website for more information – volunteer.ca/study
As a part of this launch, some of our Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia clients and volunteers were able to share their valuable experience as participants in the Community Connections Family to Family Program. Check out the video below on family volunteering at Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia.
