Volunteering is central to the mission of New Directions. We recognize that it is only through our a special group of people giving generously of their time and talents that we can build our neighborhoods and keep them strong. We value every volunteer who is willing to contribute. Regardless of your your skill level, gender, age, or the amount of time you can give, we have a volunteer opportunity for you!
So, it really is okay to ask, "What's in it for me?"
Volunteering can be far more than simply doing a good deed.
Volunteering can be a great way to develop skills, learn more about career options, make friends, strengthen relationships, garner new professional contacts, get exercise, spend time outdoors/enjoying the rich experiences of older neighbors/with kids, shake up your routine, and just have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped.
Who says that doing good and enjoying yourself while meeting your own personal/professional goals can't happen at the same time?
There are so many ways to get involved! Whether you are a new or experienced volunteer, we can connect you to meaningful opportunity to make a difference.
