Hannah made volunteering for Youth Villages really easy! She immediately responded when I expressed interest through volunteermatch.org. We easily set up a date I could volunteer to help put together backpacks for children. The day of volunteering Hannah gave us some history of the organization and we watched an orientation video. Then we got right to it. Hannah was very organized and you can tell she has a passion for Youth Villages and was a pleasure to volunteer with! Thanks for a great experience!

The staff and fellow volunteers I worked with were very friendly and inviting and made the task of paining the gym fun and enjoyable. They are very grateful for their volunteers, and are a pleasure to work with!
