What does it mean to participate in the WestJetters Caring for Our Community program?
To us, it means we get to make a positive impact in the communities we call home and strengthen our relationships outside of work. Some of our favourite memories as a team are when we volunteered for the Women In Need Society, The Secret Service Gift Drop, Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families, the WestJet Cares for Kids holiday tradition with BGC Airdrie, and lastly with the Calgary Drop In Centre.
What impact has volunteering together impacted your team?
Volunteering has strengthened our team's bond at work, within the community as well as our friendships outside of the workplace. Volunteering aligns with our missions, visions, and values, which enhances our overall culture.
What advice do you have for teams or groups looking to get out and volunteer?
Find something you’re collectively passionate about and get out there. Once you get the momentum it’s hard to stop the feel-good feeling!
At WestJet, we continue to be thankful for all the WestJetters who selflessly give their time and hearts to make a difference. Throughout National Volunteer Week, and every week, salute our WestJetters and the community organizations who continuously make meaningful impacts in our communities and in the lives of others.
