Mex Y Can es una organización que opera por medio de voluntarios que dedican su tiempo a realizar alguna labor que les permite hacer la diferencia en la Comunidad Mexicana en Manitoba. Todas tus contribuciones como voluntario valen mucho y son reconocidas, no sólo en tu comunidad si no en muchas otras partes. El ser voluntario te ayuda a re-enforzar o poner en práctica tus abilidades o a adquirir nuevo conocimiento. Ser voluntario también te ayuda a tener buenos elementos en tu curriculum. Además de que te ayuda a crecer tu red social y contribuye a que te integres al lugar en donde vives fuera de México.

Why Should I Volunteer?
Volunteering is fun and fulfilling! Volunteering gives you an opportunity to make a difference in your community. You can use your skills and experience to help and enrich the local Mexican community in Manitoba. Volunteering provides you with development opportunities, for example: communication and people skills, organizational and time management skills, planning and budgeting skills, networking. Also you can include your volunteering activities as part of your resume.
Time commitment could be an evening, a weekend, or maybe more in case you are interested in participating at the planning some of the many Mexican events throughout the year.
Who Can be a Volunteer?
Volunteering is open to all interested.
Volunteers are placed in a task for which they have an avid interest and to which they are suited. Mex Y Can wants your experience with us to be as rewarding as possible. The decision as to where a volunteer is placed is based on discussion between the volunteer and the Board of Directors.
The Mex Y Can Volunteer Recognition Program aims to distinguish the efforts of those volunteers who go above and beyond expectations.
This Program is administered by the Board of Directors of Mex Y Can who is responsible of tracking the volunteer history and commitment, and for selecting the final nominees to be awarded.
Awards are presented once per operating year of the Association during the Annual General Meeting or at a Mexican Community event.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
The Mex Y Can invites Full members to be part of the election process to become part of the Board of Directors. Full and Associate Members are welcome to participate in the organization and execution of social or cultural functions for the Community.
