Just as we rely on donors to help fund up to 21% of our operations every year, we rely on volunteers to help us deliver high-quality services, and contribute their skills, time and compassion to enhance our initiatives. Volunteers bring fresh ideas, develop and share skills, gain work experience and make new friends.
