Volunteer with your significant other as a Couple Match. A Couple Match can interact with a child either one-on-one or together as a couple. Volunteering can also be more fun when done as a family!

It is a perfect way to spend time together, as well as a rewarding and educational experience for everyone involved. And, the Family Match is a wonderful chance to introduce your children to volunteerism -- family fun plus one!
