COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS ARE THE LIFE-BLOOD OF A LITTLE HELP
Our volunteers are all thoroughly screened and commit to participating in core annual trainings and orientations held regularly. Our services are only as good as our volunteers, so we invest in the highest quality professional development for them. As a result of our investment and the positive relationships they build with their senior neighbors our volunteer retention rate is over 80%, with an average tenure of three years. Volunteers are also considered members in our organization, as such, we are blurring the lines between those serving and served.
Volunteers benefit from their involvement in an intergenerational community and the opportunity to give back to strengthen their own neighborhoods.
We also strive to provide opportunities for teens and younger volunteers to be involved in these grassroots efforts. As a non-profit organization, we can provide students with school community service hours, and we are happy to complete the necessary paperwork to show their participation.
