On Wednesday, February 12, Calgary Christian School transformed its gymnasium into a volunteer fair where representatives from nearly 30 service agencies showed middle and high school students that, regardless of their interest, there are plenty of opportunities for them to serve in our community.
The lnspirAct Volunteer Fair was spearheaded by Calgary Christian School's Principal Jason Kupery.
"Calgary Christian School believes in incorporating our mission statement, 'God's Children Making the World a Better Place,' into everything we do," said Kupery. "To bring volunteer opportunities to our kids is a great way to show them there are many ways to serve in the community."
lnspirAct presented volunteerism to almost 700 Grade 6, middle and high school students from Calgary Christian School, Master's Academy and Picture Butte High School. The students were also given the opportunity to talk to the various representatives and learn about a wide range of volunteer opportunities they can participate in now and in the future.
Non-profit agencies in attendance were Winsport, Animal Rescue Foundation, Boys and Girls Club, Canadian Red Cross, Heritage Park, Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta, City of Calgary Parks, Kids Cancer Care Foundation, Inn from the Cold and YMCA Calgary, to name just a few.
If your organization would like to participate in lnspirAct in the future, please contact Charlene Foster, Career and Academic Counsellor at Calgary Christian School at 403-242-2896.
