Creating leaders through volunteering.

The term VOLT means a unit of potential, and that is how our volunteer program sees its student leaders. Inspired by the idea to do more, VOLT was originally started by two students in 2010. Since then, it has grown to train over 1,500 student volunteers, who have contributed more than 57,000 hours of service to the community.

The student-led and run volunteer program empowers Langara students to connect with rewarding volunteer opportunities on-campus and in the community, while gaining valuable hands-on work experience and soft skills. Over 300 students are now registered annually as VOLT members, volunteering at over 50 on-campus events and supported more than 115 community-based organizations. It’s rare to have a Langara event without an orange VOLT t-shirt in sight.

However, VOLT is reaching its program limits. Additional student leadership capacity and training is required to meet the increased demands on the program.  These needs include students wanting to become a trained VOLT leaders, but also to meet the need for volunteer support both on campus and in the community.

VOLT’s leadership training program provides instruction for up-and-coming VOLT student leaders to increase their skills to take on the program’s leadership capacity. The cost to train a new student leader is approximately $300 annually.  In order to train the additional leadership resources for the 2018-19 year, an additional $6,000  is required to host additional sections of the leadership training program.  This training will help to sustain this valuable initiative for students to gain experiential learning skills, as well as to service the growing volunteer needs both on campus and in the community.

You can help train the next generation of VOLT leaders and allow them do more for our community.

“VOLT facilitates a person’s ability to realize his or her own potential. As a volunteer program, the members of VOLT are naturally driven to give back and contribute to society. VOLT helped me find my purpose and gave my education clearer direction, and a place I could call home during my time at Langara. ” – Tony Virdo
