The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Cornerstone Foundation Inc. has instituted a new outreach program for at risk middle and high school youth in the Rockville area. Volunteers are needed to help staff provide a safe and caring place for young people after school. Youth will have some structured time to do homework and/or attend workshops and also play time at basketball, pool, foos ball, etc. Currently the program is being offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-8:00 p.m. Volunteers can help for any hours during that time period or for the whole time slot. Volunteers need to be willing to actively engage with teens who may have difficult and troubled lives.
