Great experience at the Working CentreReviewed By: Conor B
I have volunteered at the Working Centre for three months and volunteered there a few times before as well. Overall, I really appreciated the experience because they are a sustainable organization that is developing downtown Kitchener from the ground up. Helping people find jobs, organizing community events and having grassroots change in various different areas such as Recycle Cylce, Computer Recycling and Soup Kitchen organizations, they are committed to giving back to the community. I highly recommend engaging yourself in this excellent volunteer community that includes people who you can truly help and feel better for the experience. Get out there and help out as much as you can.
