VOLUNTEER

Make a difference in a young person’s life. Our youth are highly motivated to get out of the poverty cycle, get off the streets, and find sustainable careers. A few hours a month can make huge change!

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

    • Video editing – Edit footage for posting on YouTube and for creating DVDs.
    • Grant writing – We will identify the grant and provide you with the information on how to write it.
