What Our Happy Volunteer Says

VO made it so easy to find a volunteer position fit for my interests. So easy, that I reached out to multiple organizations. The volunteer positions not only were a perfect match for my current studies, but it also was a perfect match in terms of roles. To anyone thinking of volunteering: one thousand percent do it; it is such a great feeling to have known that you have the chance, the honour of helping someone and spreading happiness.
