Volunteering connects you to others and impacts on the students we serve. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to our vulnerable students we serve.

We are looking for all types of people – while some of our volunteers are naturally outgoing, others are shy and have a hard time meeting new people. Your children and grandchildren are watching you – show them how giving back is a wonderful way to live a fulfilled life.

Volunteering provides you a meaningful to engage with others and it can it helps counteract stress, anxiety, and boredom.
