Did you know that a community can grow, become more vibrant and be healthy with the help of dedicated people who care about the place they live, work, and play in? Get involved and give back to your community! This is a great opportunity to develop new skills, build experience and knowledge, meet new people and make a big difference to the people around you.
Here are some ideas on how you can get involved:
Volunteer your time (join local non-profit groups & organizations and help them serve the community):
