Ebony Logins

Extraordinary volunteer: Ebony Logins

Sooke and region is a community full of dedicated volunteers

Still in her twenties, Ebony Logins is a seasoned volunteer with over 12 years of experience! Her interests and passions are varied from being a martial arts instructor and basketball coach to facilitating events for various organizations throughout B.C. Volunteering has provided her with opportunities for travel and speaking engagements on the importance of volunteerism.

 

Ebony recently changed her career path from tourism management to youth work because of the innovation, energy, and potential of youth.  She works part-time at Volunteer Victoria with the Youth Volunteer Connections Program: an energetic team dedicated to supporting youth 13-29 who face barriers in finding enjoyable and meaningful volunteer opportunities.

“Everyone is so passionate about their work” says Ebony, “It’s a great place to be!”

She also holds a contract as the Sooke Youth Council Coordinator.

“The youth in Sooke are incredible. They are doing an amazing job of proving their love and dedication to our community,”  says Ebony.

The current project “Medicine for Maysa” on April 4 has inspired her even more.

“The whole community is coming together to support Maysa and her family, all because our youth wanted to make a difference. In Sooke, there is not much for youth to do, so smaller events are sometimes underappreciated. Realistically though, they are very important. Our youth are building community, creating an energy, giving younger kids hope that one day they will feel like they belong to something bigger than themselves.  Anyone can take part in an event like this. There are many opportunities to help: decorating, advertising, or simply attending the dance and having fun!”

 

Ebony will volunteer for Operation Trackshoes this summer, where volunteers are paired with special needs children and adults for three days and partake in activities at UVic.
