Just saying this right now for those who don’t know, I live in Ontario, Canada. In Ontario, you must volunteer for 40 hours in high school or else you can’t graduate. But since I go to a catholic school, I have to volunteer 10 hours each year (if I do 40 in one year, I still have to do 10 the next year) which really sucks. In addition, there are less things I can volunteer for since I have to do “Christian Community Service.”
Anyways, I’ve applied at some places that I can volunteer at, and none of them replied. =_= Or, some of them won’t write down the hours for me, so there’s no point in volunteering there when I can spend my time helping other places that will provide me hours. It sucks because most places already have enough volunteers, or they just don’t want a short 14 year old girl.
I also have to do this before January, because volunteering is worth 10% of my mark in Religion class. And you see, I want excellent grades. (Who doesn’t?)
There are also usually events, but you have to see this person for more information, and every time I go in her office she’s never there… So I’m kinda screwed in that sense.
WHY CAN’T MOST PLACES JUST ACCEPT THIS POOR LITTLE ASIAN GIRL????? [CRIES INTERNALLY]
