Working in the COVID 19 Era- Volunteer

YWCA Saskatoon’s Employment and Learning Centre remains closed for in-person programs in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.  We will continue to provide remote services via email, telephone, and social media (Facebook).

We believe it is important to maintain your job search momentum. As such the Employment and Learning Centre will offer you daily job search advice and support that you can complete from home.

Today’s post is another post in the series….

It is fair to say that people’s top priority during the COVID – 19 pandemic should be ensuring that you and your family remain safe.   If you are available to work, volunteering will allow you to help others in your community.    Volunteering with a local organization can be a great way to connect with others, be part of something bigger, and keep up your skills.  Volunteering is another way to contribute to Saskatchewan’s COVID-19 response and beyond.
