Click on The Windsor Star link below to see our Comets volunteering in the community....

On Monday, May 4, 2015, United Way and its partners officially launched the 2015 Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge, Change The World (CTW).  CTW is a province-wide strategy of the Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade, and the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network to encourage youth to volunteer in their communities.
 
In our community, United Way/Centraide, along with many partners and supporters, organized the initiative through a Community Garden Project, running from April 12th to May 24th.  Youth from four local School Boards will participate in the Community Garden Project by preparing and planting at sixteen community gardens across the County and City.  The goal of the local project is to challenge 500 high school students to Change The World through the Youth Volunteer Challenge. Further, students will also learn about the current issues facing those experiencing hunger and sustainable solutions to ensure food security.
