This weekend, our Volunteer Program Manager Tina Barzo has been working really hard keeping all of our volunteers safe and connected. We are thankful to Tina and everyone out there helping in any way they can. One participant wrote “Tina![We] are at the airport waiting for our flights. We are both fine and happy. Thank you so much for an incredible month in Canada. I have loved every second of it, even the crazy ending! I will never forget it and I hope to return to Banff one day soon thank you again for everything, programmes as special as this one don't come around very often and I feel very lucky to have been a part of it.”
