The St. Louis area nonprofit network includes a strong base of human services, services that are essential to keeping our community strong by providing assistance and support to the most vulnerable in our community.
There are many ways to be involved, volunteer on your own, or get involved with a group of friends, family members or colleagues.
If you are looking for new ways for your family to spend quality time together, volunteering is one way to do that.
Participating in a 'Day of Service' project is a simple way of building volunteerism into family life.
Some service projects are perfect for introducing youth to volunteering and philanthropy. They provide a chance to educate and inspire the next generation. Involving children in community service helps stimulate community spirit and develop habits of generosity at an early age.
Volunteering enables high school and college students to gain new skills and knowledge and can be a great pathway to gaining paid employment. It helps young people with personal and professional development by giving them an opportunity to build on skills or interests by gaining some practical experience.
And, volunteering is a fun way for young people to meet new people while supporting causes that they feel passionate about.
