Peel - ChangeTheWorld: Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is a three-week campaign with a goal to get students to volunteer in their community, and serve the community involvement hours toward their high school diploma. This year, Ontario is asking 25,000 young people to volunteer 3 hours over the three week campaign, and ACCESS’ Youth Making a Difference Conference is part of this challenge.

The ChangeTheWorld: Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge runs for 3 weeks (April 15 to May 6, 2012) and coincides with the Youth Making a Difference Conference (April 26, 2012) and National Volunteer Week (April 15 to 21, 2012).

ACCESS invites all youth in the Peel Region to register for the fourth annual Youth Making a Difference Conference being hosted April 26 in Mississauga, online today. This is a great way for youth to network with community organizations, be inspired by other youth activists, and obtain the tools to make a difference in their own community.

This year, ACCESS has joined Volunteer MBC’s ChangeTheWorld 2012 Campaign with our Youth Making a Difference Conference. Interested Volunteers can sign-up to help at the conference online through Volunteer MBC here. The challenge provides the opportunity for youth to connect to community organizations and provides an awesome experience and incredible memories.

Youth are the future of our communities. ACCESS is youth-run organization aiming to inspire and empower other youth.
