Volunteering, it's not a chore.
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give ~ Winston Churchill
Ontario high schools require their students to put in 40 hours of community service in order to receive their diploma. It's a requirement that makes sense: the goal of this whole thing called “school” is to turn kids –monsters- like us into functioning members of society, and let’s be honest, we need more than good grades to do that- we also need to be good people. People who help others out just for the sake of helping out. That's what you call volunteering.
Now, there's this great event coming up soon. The Pan American Games. It's a sports event in likeness of the Olympics, originating in Argentina and held every four years since 1951. Next year, in 2015, Toronto will be the host of this event (wow, were hosting something either than the winter Olympics!). Want to be part of this notable occasion? Well, you're in luck. They're accepting applications for volunteers, so if you're over 16 years old and looking for opportunities, take a look at their website: http://www.toronto2015.org/volunteer
But perhaps sports festivals aren't your thing. That's fine. But... since you're looking at this website right now... could we assume that you'd be interested in volunteering/working for the OOSS? Well, you’re in luck again (you’ve been having such a lucky day today)! Our ambassador applications are open! If you are interested in challenging yourself and becoming an active member of your school environment, then this position would be perfect for you! Think fast though: we'll only be taking applications until November 7th.
