About the event

Assemble activity bags and fruit baskets for residents at Harts Harbor, lunch out in River City Children in today’s culture are rarely given an opportunity to contribute ideas, talents or time to finding causes they are passionate about. In fact, children are typically seen as beneficiaries of good will, rather than potential volunteers or organizers. Youth who do volunteer are less likely to become involved in at-risk behaviors such as drinking alcohol and skipping school compared with those who do not. Volunteerism also positively impacts other youth social and behavioral issues like teen pregnancy, dropout, substance abuse and violence. It can make a dramatic difference in the lives of young participants by instilling a sense of purpose and reason to achieve. In addition to long-term community

improvement, youth volunteers realize lifelong impact through: Promotion of a healthy lifestyle, empathy and good

choices, Enhanced psychological and intellectual development, Increased self-esteem and responsibility, Interest in

learning and applying new material, New social skills, Improved physical and mental health; lower rates of depression,

and greater life satisfaction.
