Youth of all ages, whether individually or as part of a larger group, are sharing their talents and making a difference across the country and around the world.
Helping others builds self-esteem. You feel good because you are making a difference.
When you help others, you appreciate what you have and realize how blessed you are.
When you are volunteering, there is no time to feel lonely, guilty, or afraid.
Volunteering empowers you to better understand people, the organization you are working with, and yourself.
You are helping to improve your community for yourself and for others

What We Offer
No single organization, no matter how well organized or how representative of the community, can create systemic change by itself. And no one group can possibly implement all of the interventions.

What is the value of community service?
It is a way for us to regain a sense of community.
It helps to broaden our knowledge of social justice issues.
It links us to the wider community and exposes us to people and situations outside our every day experiences.
We develop new skills, assume responsibilities and become aware of the needs of others.
We learn how to give and serve unselfishly
As a point of comparison, imagine what our world would be like if no one volunteered...
There would be no social, leisure or sporting activities and no Olympic Games without volunteer coaches and organizers.
There would be no music events, concerts, or festivals without volunteer fundraisers.
There would be little medical research, advice or support for people with specific health problems.
People would die without volunteer search and rescue teams or the American Red Cross.
Much of the landscape, wildlife and areas of natural beauty would suffer from neglect.
Countless old and disabled people would be isolated and lonely.
The homeless would have few places to turn for help.
