Your impact

  • Your Impact

    Volunteering is a direct way of positively impacting your community while also contributing to your own personal development. Not only can a few hours make a difference to the people around you, it can provide you with the wonderful opportunity to develop new skills, build on existing experience and meet new people. Regardless of your motivation, volunteering is rewarding in every way!

Many ways to get involved
many chances to make a difference

 

Get started:

Encourage reading comprehension by becoming a reading buddy.

  Share financial management and other skills to non-profit professionals.

Assist elderly with navigating the web and using computers.

Help maintain  our public and community spaces, such as parks, schools, and beaches.

Why get involved? Because change begins with you!

  I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything,
I should not refuse to do the something that I can do.

– Edmund Everett Hale
