     Why Volunteer?

     “Add life to years,

    not just years to life.” 

                    --Karen Middleton

 

 

Volunteering is a key aspect of the Village model. Villages draw on the untapped skills of neighbors helping neighbors.

Cross-generational relationships through volunteering and mentorship can be of lifelong value to all parties involved.Youth as well as elders are valued and respected for their ideas and skills.

Reciprocity is the basis for developing and sustaining relationships. We all need help in different ways, at different times, and  for different reasons. We can pay it forward now so we feel more comfortable asking for help when it's needed.
