Guest Speaker
Amanda Jensen, Executive Director, Volunteer Lethbridge
Amanda has been serving the non-profit sector, largely in Southern Alberta for the past 25 years and shared some important insights about the social and economic impacts of volunteering. She notes that in 2023 Volunteer Lethbridge directly or indirectly supported 57% of Lethbridge residents who volunteered… which represents more than 60,000 volunteers who each contributed an average of 91 hours each! That equates to a $134M economic impact to Lethbridge and area.
Amanda holds a B. Mgt from U of L, and a M.A. in Organizational Leadership from the University of Guelph.
