Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity produces a feeling of self-worth and respect; however, there is no financial gain. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, socialization, and fun. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster. Volunteer support need not be confined to helping the children and could include adult education, professional services, administrative assistance, building and garden maintenance – really anything. We do not like to prescribe too much as we believe that each volunteer has something unique and valuable to offer. You are welcome to discuss your ideas with us and together we will devise a role for you that benefits all.
