Give to 2018 Giving Tuesday and help our student volunteers do more.

Helping Langara create strong community leaders through volunteering. 

Giving Tuesday is an annual day of giving for people to support the causes important to them, and to celebrate the act of giving. In 2018, we asked our community to support one of Langara’s best kept secrets and a program close to the hearts of many Langarans, our VOLT volunteer program.

VOLT was created in 2010 by two students inspired to do more. Since then the program has contributed over 57,000 volunteer hours on-campus, and at organizations in Vancouver and abroad. VOLT’s mission is to promote community engagement, social awareness, and student development through volunteerism.

With support from our community, Langara’s Giving Tuesday campaign raised almost $10,000 (before matching for VOLT and other student scholarships and bursaries. The College matched a portion of the funds raised for Giving Tuesday. After matching, our final total for Giving Tuesday was over Giving Tuesday raised over $17,000 for the VOLT program and other student scholarships and bursaries.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Giving Tuesday campaign. In particular, thanks to our friends at the Langara Students Union for partnering with us again for Giving Tuesday. Through the efforts from our social media community, Langara Students’ Union donated $2,500 to VOLT as a result of our social media campaign.  Each and every like, share, and comment on Giving Tuesday made a difference and the combined impact of our social media followers will help VOLT do more in the community.
