Humanity In Practice is about giving back at any age through purposeful acts of kindness.

Can an 8-year-old volunteer on their own?

Can preschoolers make a difference from their classroom?

Can seniors help without leaving their community?

Can youth give back over their lunch hour?

The answer is YES.  Our hip projects can be done from your home, class, group or office.  We make it easy for any age to help.  From where ever you are.  We connect people who want to help with those who need help.   Our hip projects are flexible, done off-site and supports a cause here is Calgary.

Did you know?

  • If children volunteer at a young age, they are twice as likely to volunteer as adults.
  • Youth volunteering just 1 hour a week reduces at risk behavior by 49%!
