The ChangeTheWorld – Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is a call to action for youth to get involved in their community. From April 6 to May 19, 2014 all across Ontario youth between the ages of 14 to 18 are invited to get involved in local community events, or to create events of their own to promote or support a cause that they feel really passionate about.

ChangeTheWorld is an opportunity for young people to connect to community organizations which can provide them with an awesome experience and lasting memories. It also lets youth take the initiative on causes they feel really passionate about.

Across Ontario, over the last six years, close to 100,000 youth have participated in ChangeTheWorld contributing to almost 435,000 volunteer hours! Last year, locally, Volunteer MBC engaged over 7,264 youth in 167 events, which totaled an astounding 25,521 volunteer hours! That was pretty amazing, but this year we’re pushing the boundaries to the furthest it can go.
