Volunteer Opportunities

“The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” - DeAnn Hollis

 

Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to the community, learn new skills as well as to advance your career. It always does not have to involve long - term commitments and take over huge amount of time of  your busy schedule.The value of volunteering is much more deeper, much more fulfilling and much more important in contributing to a healthy and vibrant community. We do understand not all volunteer positions fit everyone, therefore EBSS has various different opportunities that might suit you the best. Below are the list of volunteer opportunities for the academic year of 2016/2017.
