Youth Transforming Society (YTS) is hosing their third-annual Volunteering and Beyond event on Oct. 19 from 5-7 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth Secondary, 9457 136 St.

More than 60 organizations, including the City of Surrey, Surrey RCMP, Canadian Cancer Society, YMCA and Ronald McDonald House will set up information booths to interact with and inform local youth about potential volunteer and leadership opportunities.

YTS is a Surrey-based youth group that aims to raise awareness for humanitarian issues and encourage community volunteerism.
