Young People In Ontario Challenged to Change the World

Annual Challenge Encourages High School Students to Volunteer in their Communities

Ontario is encouraging high school students to change the world through the power of volunteering during the 10th ChangeTheWorld - Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge.

The six-week challenge takes place from April 23 to June 3 this year, coinciding with National Volunteer Week, which runs from April 23 to 29. 

This year's goal is for 39,000 students aged 14 to 18 to volunteer for at least three hours during the campaign. 

The ChangeTheWorld - Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is delivered in partnership with the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network and 23 of its volunteer centres across the province. The campaign encourages young people to give back and get involved, and helps them develop important transferable skills such as leadership and teamwork. 

Encouraging young people to volunteer in their communities is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
