Volunteer Dufferin is working with the Career Education Council to participate in a wonderful event on April 17th, during National Volunteer Week.
 
The event is Career Pathways Dufferin, a one-stop career exploration and community connections event for grade 8 students. An anticipated 1200 students and their teachers will attend, and our focus will be to spotlight the importance of volunteering, and the opportunities available for young people to volunteer in our community.
 
We hope to find a sponsor for the Community Connections room so that our Volunteer Dufferin/DC Moves members will be able to participate for free. Space will be limited, so stay tuned for details.
 
And if you know of a business or organization who'd like to sponsor the Community Connections room, please contact Nichole at careered.council@ugdsb.on.ca.
