The Changers SWAG Participant and Youth Mentor Awarded Governor General Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers!

Watch the above video to see one of The Changers' Program participants be awarded the Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers. Award presented to her by Craig Keilburger, founder of WE Charity! 

This medal recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country in a wide range of fields.

As an official Canadian honour, the Medal for Volunteers incorporates and replaces the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. The Medal builds on the legacy and spirit of the Caring Canadian Award by honouring the dedication and commitment of volunteers.

 

We're so proud of you, Madison!

On November 9, 2016, The Changers Ottawa were thrilled to attend WE Day for the second year in a row. WE Day is a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities. WE Schools is the yearlong program that nurtures compassion in young people and gives them the tools to create transformational social change. Not just anyone gets a ticket to WE Day - you have to earn it.

WE Day offers young people the tools and the inspiration to take social action, empower others and transform lives—including their own. Participants of the SWAG program were able to volunteer as Crowd Pumpers. What is that? Exactly what it sounds like!! They were pumping up the crowd of 16,000 young volunteers!
