The Benefits of Volunteering With Elevating Connections
Many studies show that the positive influence of one adult can make a lasting difference in the life of a child. When you volunteer with Elevating Connections, you can experience the joy of being that positive influence in a child’s life.
As a volunteer, you’ll spend time with kids and older youth as you help them make friendships and find their voice in the world. The youth look forward to meeting our volunteers and connecting with them, especially as they interact with the same volunteers on a regular basis. This gives each child a greater sense of belonging and stability both in the community and in their personal lives, which can lay the foundation for healthier relationships during adulthood.
Volunteering also changes the lives of our volunteers. When you volunteer with Elevating Connections, you can experience the joy of helping a child feel like they belong. The smiles on the kids’ faces and the incredible growth you’ll see in each kid is the ultimate reward for our volunteers.
We also make sure to thank our volunteers throughout the year. We offer volunteer happy hours and volunteer recruitment events, which are all displayed on our calendar for your convenience.
