National Volunteer Week: Celebrating the Power of Together

National Volunteer Week 2022

April 24-30, 2022 is National Volunteer Week, a week-long celebration where we recognize the many meaningful contributions our volunteers make throughout the year and thank them for their engagement and support of University of Waterloo and Faculty of Environment initiatives. 

This year, the Faculty of Environment's chosen theme for National Volunteer Week is "celebrating the power of together". Below and on our social media accounts, you will find mini profiles on a handful of student, faculty, staff, and alumni volunteers. We hope you enjoy getting to know some of these incredible community members and are inspired to find your own avenue to give back.
