Multiply the positive effect by gathering your friends
Volunteering as an individual is certainly rewarding, but you can multiply the positive effect by gathering your friends from your church, civic organization, club or neighborhood to work together as volunteers for Youth Villages.
Projects designed for groups are a fun way to give back to your community through work with young people who need positive adult influences. As just a few examples, volunteer groups have played sports or games with our kids, hosted birthday parties, planted flowers and trees, and had cookouts on our campuses.
Groups of volunteers are also critical to helping us operate large fundraising events such as Soup Sunday and the YV5K.
If you would like to learn more about involving your company, church, classmates, or neighborhood friends in volunteer opportunities, please contact us (right).
Your efforts will be deeply appreciated by both the kids and our staff, and we’re sure you’ll find volunteering rewarding and meaningful, as well.
The Youth Villages Volunteer Program would like to extend a special thanks to all of our Memphis area volunteer groups who visit our residents on monthly basis.
