Every one of us can do something to make a difference – volunteering as a mentor,
helping with clerical needs, respite child care, cooking a meal, advisory board
members, holiday gift elves or fundraising support. The opportunities are endless.
Aunt Martha's Youth Service Center started with a team of youth and adult volunteers
and the tradition continues. Today our volunteers help in many of our programs.
We strive for volunteer involvement at all levels as we believe that our volunteers
play an integral role on the delivery of services to children, youth and families.
Some of the Best Reasons to Volunteer
Some of the best reasons to give are the ones you may not have considered – the
ones that make it worth your while to go that extra step.
People who have spent time volunteering for a cause report that they get back in
satisfaction and joy more than they ever expend in inconvenience or effort – what
you get back is immeasurable. You'll also receive these benefits:
It's What in the World You Can Do!
You might be thinking, “The little bit that I can do will never help much!” or “What
in the world can I do?” If you've ever spent ten minutes reading a book to a lonely
child, you know that even that small amount of compassion and attention can make
a world of difference. No one person can solve the world's problems, but what little
you do can make your little corner of the world – or one far away from yours a happier,
healthier, safer place to live for those who need your help. Each of us can right
a wrong, fill a plate, read a book, teach a teen – and that does make a difference
for us all!
