The CASA program I came through is a terrific volunteer program that connects volunteers to abused and neglected children in their community. CASA provides a great learning experience as well as a badly needed service to children unlucky enough to be born into tragic circumstances.
KARA has had the good fortune of having volunteers from Century College & Macalaster College to find information for me to write about and to research information on child abuse in other nations.
Volunteering is a powerful force at times like these, when young families are struggling, and more children are at risk.
To make volunteering work, it is best to do things that you like to do, for people that need it. The results are terrific.
Don’t be afraid to provide services through your own efforts (perhaps with the help of your local religious or business organizations). Small efforts become big if fed and sustained.
What follows is my quick list of child friendly organizations that need volunteers and articles on volunteering (to start the thought process).
