ChangeTheWorld: Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is entering its 7th year and is now a 6 week campaign with one goal: get high school students to volunteer in their community.
The 2014 campaign kicks off during National Volunteer Week in April.
The 2014 campaign has been extended from 4 to 6 weeks, giving Ontario students more time and more volunteer events to participate in ChangeTheWorld.
Did you know?
Since 2008, more than 100,000 students have participated volunteering over 433,000 hours in their communities. That's impressive!
And in 2013, we had a total of 38, 000 high school youth volunteering over 170, 000 hours in their communities!
The 2014 goal is to engage over 33,000 young people in volunteering a minimum of 99,000 hours over the course of 6 weeks.
Bring your friends. Volunteer!
Ontario is challenging young people to volunteer for at least three hours over six weeks to "change the world" in their communities.
