Volunteerism

  • "Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies." - Kofi Annan
     
     
     
    New Opportunity:

    Do you know a teen looking to get involved in the community? If the answer is "yes," then we have just the group for them to join! The Youth Advisory Committee serves as a liaison between the City Council and youth in the community. The committee learns how their local government operates, hosts guest speakers on topics affecting youth in our community, organizes community service projects each semester and gives reports to the City Council each year. 

     

    The Youth Advisory Committee is a great opportunity to learn about the community and local government, to serve the community through volunteering and meet new friends. To sign-up please email Kristin James at kjames@nrhtx.com or call 817-427-6015. Applications are due by September 9, 2018.

     
     
     
    hands w heart      THE IMPORTANCE OF VOLUNTEER WORK

    Volunteer work is the cornerstone that joins charitable service and hard work. While an individual generally does not receive compensation for volunteer hours, the rewards of service go far beyond that of monetary payment. In addition to the personal satisfaction and deeper understanding of community gained in helping a person or organization, individuals who volunteer are likely to develop a network of contacts that can be useful when searching for a job. http://www.learnhowtobecome.org/volunteer-and-nonprofit-careers/
