Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. While volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers say they get back more than they give. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding meaningful personal connections, volunteering creates social and economic value for all.

During National Volunteer Week (Sunday, April 15 to Saturday, April 21), the University of Ontario Institute of Technology recognizes, celebrates and thanks its many volunteers, students, faculty, staff, board members and community members. These volunteers build confidence, connections and a culture of community within the university. Whether they lead initiatives or help with on-campus events and varsity sports, volunteers contribute to the student experience and make the university a better place.
