Youth Helping Youth.
The Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society (VIRCS) has 20 years of experience in helping immigrants, refugees, new Canadian citizens, and visible minorities settle in and adapt to their new lives in Greater Victoria. They are looking for teen volunteers in Grades 11 and 12 to help out with various programs such as homework tutors, translation, interpretation, multicultural events, festivals, special events, fundraising, and office duties.
They hold weekly volunteer information and orientation meetings every Thursday at 4:00. All volunteer positions are either one time (for an event) or are weekly commitments. This is a very exciting opportunity to help young people who are new to our country.
