Canada’s National Volunteer Week runs from April 24-30, 2022 


The theme for this year’s week of recognition is Empathy in Action, affirming the strong connection between volunteerism and empathy. This profoundly human connection is at the heart of healthier individuals and stronger communities.


Volunteering can help us develop empathy, to see the world through the eyes of others. It can connect people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences, expanding our views. It can build our capacity to work collectively and contribute to a vibrant, inclusive society.


Contact RISE if you are interested in volunteering. We look forward to having you!
