Volunteer Centre Column: Volunteering can Bring the World to you

Over 300 volunteers pulling together in teams are creating seven major events to be showcased during Global Citizen Kelowna Week, which actually stretches from February 15 – March 3, 2013.

You are invited to attend as a global citizen and experience the world through music, photography, film and artisan works. Learn about local activities that help reach United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals.

Be inspired to become part of this global perspective.
