April 19 – 25 is National Volunteer Week and we want to applaud our volunteers!
Dedicated, passionate, generous, helpful. These are only a handful of words to describe the people who walk through our doors every day – or connect via phone and online as we work from home – to offer their time, skills, and knowledge as volunteers.
At ISANS, we could not do what we do without the help of our more than 700 volunteers. Whether it be the Dalhousie law students offering legal assistance, practice interviewers helping newcomers prepare for interviews, EAL tutors helping language learners fine-tune their English speaking skills, the impact our volunteers have is indescribable. They champion our mission and vision and truly do help create a community where all can belong and grow.
To highlight the impact that volunteers have, we asked some individuals to share how our volunteers have helped them, and what their experience has meant to them.
We also asked some of our volunteers to share why they give back. Here is what they had to say.
