Why you might want to consider taking this opportunity Volunteers build a connection with clients during this program. It is a relaxed atmosphere with no pressure from clients or volunteers.

The program is only on Thursday mornings from 9-12:30. Also, volunteers are on a schedule rotation, and so do not need to commit to every week.

Volunteers have the opportunity to impact the lives of clients in a positive manner. Volunteers also have the opportunity to learn from clients.
