“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart.”

Elizabeth Andrew

Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do. In celebration of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we would like to express immense gratitude for our dedicated community of volunteers.

Empathy fosters connection. It allows us to share experiences and ideas, to deepen our relationships, and build stronger communities. When we see the world through the eyes of others, we expand our perspectives and gain insight on the diverse experiences of those around us. Our volunteers put empathy into action. From Victoria to Vancouver, your impact is making waves.

The compassion, keen energy, openness, and unique gifts you bring to our community are unparalleled. We truly could not do this without you. Like the expansive and sturdy root network of a mighty tree, you support the foundation from which our programs and impact can flourish.

Program Volunteers, your ability to authentically connect with our participants is the magic of our programs. You show up with open minds and full hearts to provide support where it is needed most and create unforgettable experiences in nature. You are ambassadors for our mission and the greater inclusion movement; thank you.

Board and Committee Members, your leadership drives our organization forward. Thank you for bringing your passion to Power To Be and guiding us with your unique knowledge and expertise.
