HUGGS is led by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors and our activities in Canada are supported by volunteers who generously give their time and their abilities on various endeavours.
HUGGS has volunteer opportunities in the following areas:
- Fundraising and Events:
Help us to raise funds to support HUGGS students by volunteering to organize fundraising and donor appreciation events.
Our administrative volunteers assist with various activities including supporting fundraising and donor relations.
- Marketing and Communication:
We are looking for people with experience in public relations (PR) to join this committee.
HUGGS Canada is a registered Canadian charity, empowering youth through education in South East India. HUGGS focuses on promising young people who have the ability to excel in education, but are without the resources to study beyond Grade 10.
Thanks to our generous donors, we sponsor young people in Visakhapatnam (Vizag), to complete their secondary and post-secondary education. Students are selected based on financial need, academic ability and family encouragement.
Today more than 30 HUGGS graduates are working in their communities in careers including nursing, teaching, engineering, finance and computing.
