Contribute your time


Join our Youth Council board, volunteer in one of our programs, help organize a new project, donate food supplies to our pantry, offer fresh ideas, or let us know about someone or a family in need. It literally "takes a village" to show interest, to care, and to invest in the future of our young people. Only in this way can they transform into productive and contented adults.

Contribute an opportunity


Give a child a chance at growth by enabling them to have work experience, to be independent financially, and to learn interpersonal and life skills that will aid them in the present and future. Contact our Youth Employment Service (Y.E.S.) to post any seasonal, one-time, or on-going  jobs or internships for youth and take advantage of a wonderful community resource while, at the same time, helping our Village youth.
