Regular one-to-one time with a caring volunteer helps kids shine, inside and outside the classroom.
Volunteers join a community of like-minded Ottawans who want to make a difference in their city by supporting public education. They receive special training, regular check-ins, and other ongoing support from VIE along the way. Volunteering with us is flexible, and we have a variety of opportunities to fit with your schedule.

“…I just want to thank you for this opportunity! I find it a really great break from university stress just being around happy children and playing music like I used to. 🙂 It’s really made me happier and I’m so thankful!”
