For many of us, life without art is empty. No, having access to it is not a matter of life and death, but it can be the difference between meaning and lack thereof. We’ve all had a very tough past few months, and they would have been even worse if we didn’t have access to art.

To You As Well

Jul 14, 2020

There have been few times in recent history in which we have needed each other so badly. The reasons are plain to all of us. We’re counting on each other, sometimes in the face of great peril. To help another person without expecting reward is good for its own sake. But there are great rewards, because to help another is to help yourself. For mysterious and beautiful reasons, it feels good to be kind to someone who is struggling.

Adaptation

Things were different back then. It seems odd to use the phrase “back then” when it has only been a matter of months since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, but it feels like forever. As we all know, the virus has brought on significant changes to our lives. And volunteering is no different. Many causes have had to put their work on hold, and this made it difficult to volunteer. Some programs, however, have been able to adapt and have carried on through these troubled times. The Adult Literacy Program, run by the Red Deer Public Library, is one such case.

As we come up to National Volunteer Week, we thought it was a good time to start dispelling some common misconceptions about volunteering. We are launching a new series called, "Day in the Life of a Volunteer" in which we explore the different roles in volunteering by getting real-life experiences straight from the source - the volunteers! Our first piece features Board of Directors volunteer, Aisley Miles. Aisley, Program Manager at Turning Point, shares a bit about what it's like to sit on the Volunteer Central board. Aisley is also currently working towards a Psychology degree.
