3. Time-Limited Commitment: my volunteering me at Ethio-Canadian Cultural Academy Inc allows me to gain work experience without coming to long-term employment. It provides a flexible way to learn and practice during school breaks.
4. Appreciation for Education: I come to appreciate the value of education even more experiencing the demands of the volunteer working world. This understanding can motivate them to pursue further education or career advancement.
