In 2018 and 2019, we assisted employees of Lattitude Global Volunteering in welcoming and orienting large numbers of students arriving in Vancouver from around the world. We offered our local knowledge of the city, acting as a tour guide and local connection.
These students were embarking upon a gap year in Canada, volunteering within different cities across Alberta and British Columbia. This allowed us to build a connection with an international organization that provides volunteer opportunities for our members.
This is a great opportunity to gain some volunteer experience, act as a local tour guide and show students around our beautiful city! Contact us or attend a meeting to find out how you can get involved with this organization too.
Please note that this initiative is currently on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
