NEWTON — Directors of Surrey-based Youth Transforming Society are busy planning “Volunteering and Beyond: An Evening of Opportunities.”

The event will be held Oct. 21 at Princess Margaret Secondary, 12870 72nd Ave., Surrey.

The society’s directors are Amanbir Atwal, Ashley Grewal, Kiran Mann and Livleen Pannu.

The group, founded in 2010, aims to raise awareness for humanitarian issues and also encourage community volunteerism.

The society’s latest campaign involves the second annual “Volunteering and Beyond” event, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at the school. More than 50 organizations will set up information booths to interact with and inform local youth about potential volunteer and leadership opportunities, the organizers say.
