I was looking and interested to volunteer for almost anything to do with helping out the environment, it took some time for me to find the right one but after a while I found this volunteer job with Greenpeace Canada. They’re an organization that wants to put a stop to the destruction of the environment, they do this by means of peaceful protest to hold companies and governments to account and build a sustainable future for ourselves and for the planet. Their looking for volunteers to participate in their campaign projects, coming out to events, and getting trained to participate in actions.
This volunteer position is going to help me and my future in many different ways. I’ll have something to add to my resume to get new jobs or accepted into a university/collage, but its also helping out the environment and the world I live on. Their main concern is single use plastic and pollution , which is very important to me since its reported that in 2016 the ocean was polluted with over 335 million metric tons of plastic and its estimated that in 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean then fish. It would be amazing to know that your helping out the environment and the future generations.
Much like the volunteer opportunities I was mainly searching for a job that would help out the environment, while i was looking on Greenpeace Canada’s website I realized that they also had job openings. I looked into these job positions, their looking for a bilingual person who could work in costumer service and of course to get this job I’ll have to be a bit older. Similar to the volunteer position, the positive impact that this job would have on my future is that I would be cleaning up and helping out the environment and ensuring that I have a future. This job is for a costumer service position so I think if I were to get this job I could improve greatly on my people skills since I would be dealing with people 14 hours a week. I believe that if I were to consider applying to this position some qualifications that I could bring to this job is my ability to adapt to the environment and handle donators. I would also be able to assist other and work as team and my knowledge and awareness about environmental issues.
