YOUTHFUL FACES VOLUNTEER

With so many less fortunate children around the world, and with lack of funding for social services, more than ever before volunteering has become increasingly important.

There is no shortage of ways volunteers can help make a difference. The greatest thing about volunteering may be the benefits it offers to individual recipients, their communities, and the volunteers themselves.

We here at Youthful Faces believe strongly on volunteering. We believe if you become a helper of hearts, springs of wisdom will flow from your heart.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?”

— Martin Luther King, Jr.
