Volunteer Opportunities

 

"Everybody can be great because everybody can serve."
                    
           
     —Martin Luther King, Jr.

Perhaps the first and biggest benefit people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and making a difference in their community and country. The intangible benefits alone—such as pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment—are worthwhile reasons to serve. In addition, when we share our time and talents we:

        • Solve problems
        • Strengthen communities
        • Improve lives
        • Connect to others
        • Transform our own lives

While it might be a challenge to coordinate everyone’s schedules, volunteering as a family has many worthwhile benefits. Children watch everything you do. By giving back to the community, you show them firsthand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help others and enact change. It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know organizations in the community and find resources and activities for your children and family. Here are a few to consider:
