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.
"One never stands so tall as when kneeling to help a child."
The Active 20-30 Club US & Canada develops leaders and serves the needs of children in nearly 50 clubs coast-to-coast. Each chapter or club is locally run by a volunteer board of directors and members focused on serving the unique needs of their local communities.
Every club has its own particular focus, whether it's fundraising or community service, each has a common goal to improve the quality of life for the youth of the community.
It's not all "business" in Active 20-30, though. Our members also like to have fun and build friendships across the organization. This is why social and networking events play a large part in making Active 20-30 US & Canada the service organization for young professionals.
In addition to local events organized by each individual club, the National Board of Directors coordinates regional and national events including regional gatherings, national midterm meetings and the annual national convention. Members are strongly encouraged to support the members and activities of the other clubs in their own region.
