“Volunteering instills a sense of purpose and confidence in me, and that’s why I always try to take time out of my schedule to contribute back to my community.”
When it comes to leadership and volunteerism, Sabrina Yu shines. Sabrina was the president of her in-school YVC club, and worked tirelessly to create an enormous amount of volunteer opportunities for her members to benefit their school and local communities.
“I actually joined Youth Central as a grade eleven student. I was a founding member of my school’s YVC club and signed up right at the beginning of the year … The flexibility of the projects and wide range of opportunities available really appealed to me.”
Sabrina organized a number of major activities during her year as president. “The project I am most proud of was for the Children’s Birthday Miracles organization. Seeing my peers get so excited about volunteering at Inn from the Cold was an experience that I will never forget.”
