National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is an annual event that celebrates the impact of volunteerism in building and strengthening communities. The 2023 theme of “Volunteering Weaves Us Together” emphasizes the interconnected actions that support one another.

At carya, we understand the importance of community and collaboration. As a social impact agency, we are dedicated to promoting personal growth, building healthy relationships, and fostering community connections. We understand the crucial role that volunteerism plays in creating and sustaining healthy communities.

Volunteering has many benefits, not only for the communities being served but also for the volunteers themselves. It provides a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and personal fulfillment, as well as opportunities for personal and professional development and building a network of like-minded individuals.

During National Volunteer Week, carya wishes to honour the many volunteers who have contributed their time and talents to make a difference in our community. From our friendly, Warm Welcomers to our talented tax experts, Board of Directors, and everyone in between, carya is grateful for this dedicated group and all they make possible.

Another unique example of volunteerism at carya is demonstrated in our Community Development initiatives. Community members and program participants contribute their time to build community leadership and drive community action.

In 2022, carya volunteers contributed over 5000 hours!

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate the power of volunteering to weave communities together. It is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of volunteers and inspire others to get involved.

Thank you to all of carya’s incredible volunteers, and to those who generously give their energy to make Calgary the city in which we are proud to call home.
