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.
Youth in Focus’ mission is to empower youth, through photography, to experience their world in new ways and to make positive choices for their lives. Adult, volunteer mentors assist our Teaching Artists directly in the classroom.
