Impact Statement Our volunteers are committed, passionate individuals who enjoy working with youth.

Our volunteers return an average of 4 times during their University careers with an average annual 83% return rate. While our staff team works hard to provide a life-changing opportunity to our Catapult youth, it is often our staff who share that their lives have been changed equally.
