Why should I volunteer with World Vision Canada?
In a word, need. There is such a great need for children and families living in poverty to have their voices heard. But also… we need YOU! Our volunteers give their time and lend a variety of skills to the cause, helping more Canadians to learn about the work of World Vision and sharing the opportunity to make a difference.
