Be a Volunteer
Living is the art of loving. Loving is the art of caring. Caring is the art of sharing. Sharing is the art of living.
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
~ Booker T. Washington
Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and passion, it's about the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people become stronger, giving back to your community and gaining valuable work experience that will enhance your career opportunities.
Volunteerism can be the powerful tool that becomes a moving agent of change. If we made volunteerism part of our culture, could we strengthen our communities locally and globally? We believe so. When we connect the people that want to help with the people who need the help, it’s a win-win.
