Michael, pictured bottom left tutoring Rahwa, spoke about his volunteer experiences at our “How Can I Make a Difference?” panel event recently. Another of the panelists was a student who now attends McMaster but came to Canada a few years ago from a Burmese refugee camp. He talked about how the tutoring and mentoring we gave him at the Homework Help Club helped him to overcome the challenges he faced. It was rewarding to hear of how our simple acts of service made a difference in his life.
