Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Sometimes we need a little inspiration, comforting encouragement to help us feel connected and provide context for the life we live. The world is complex, filled with a myriad of choices and paths to take. When you decide to give freely of your time, for whatever reason, it can steer you in a new direction or affirm your choices. Just by giving your time, you can be part of something bigger than yourself and your actions can have a ripple effect.


We've compiled five sharable volunteer quotes in images! We hope that

they'll inspire you to volunteer and truly make a difference for your community. Feel free to share, save, and print these images and spread the joy!


Volunteer quotes - volunteering has no destination. The roads you can take are endless.

 "Volunteering has no destination. The roads you can take are endless."

Fiona Kovacaji - Volunteer with the Bata Show Museum“I started volunteering as a way of giving back to the community. As a student, it can feel like you’re constantly taking; from your parents, OSAP… etc and not contributing too much back to society. Volunteering is my way of making a contribution plus I’ve discovered new passions that I wouldn’t have otherwise discovered. When I began volunteering at Bata Shoe Museum I fell in love with museum work and it has inspired me to pursue a career in Museum Education.”

"The greatest gift you can give is time."


Erica Whyte - Volunteer with Jesse's Centre“I love kids, and I am very goofy, so every day that I am volunteering I try to make it as fun and as exciting as possible. We dress up in crazy clothes and we sing songs and have dance parties. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing those kids smile and laugh, so I do whatever I can to make that happen.”

 Volunteer Quote - Be part of something bigger than yourself

"Be part of something bigger than yourself."


Rod Rodney“This particular volunteer experience was unplanned but a result of an inquiry at my sailing Club about involving kids in boatworks. The Club, which supports Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders, shared with me the charity’s contact information and over time I became more involved. Why not volunteer? Seemed like the right thing to do, meet good people, show the kids what possibilities exist and use my knowledge and experience to create social change.”
