Volunteerism in Durham Region
  • Sport and recreation volunteers are beneficial
    because
  • multiple positive influences for youth are
    important,
  • they can encourage the philosophy that sport is
    fun, win or lose,
  • developing young people into taking a more active
    role in their community is important, and
  • they provide opportunities for kids in low-income
    families.
