Volunteering is a great way to help children learn to give back to their community. We believe that kids are empowered by their contribution to our society.
By serving others, kids develop compassion and establish connections with people of diverse cultures and economic situations. Volunteering helps kids develop positive self-esteem and learn valuable life lessons.
Here we connect you with local organizations and resources where kids can make a difference. Because when you help a child help others, you are helping to create a better world.
