Meet one of our past Volunteer:


“I am Akshar Mody. I’m the logistics intern at CASSA and also attend the Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario for the Honors Business Administration program and am all set for a 2014 graduation! CASSA in an agency looking to serve the needs of South Asians, and I joined CASSA in a bid to learn more about my cultural heritage. Along the way, I received opportunities to grow as a leader and to hone my technical background. I have always believed that the succcess of organizations is a result of the teamwork of its employees, and this is reflected in the manner in which CASSA has grown from strength to strength in the past 25 years.
