You Matter!

Most of us want to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We do not volunteer, for the most part, because it benefits us. We volunteer because we want to make a difference.

But there are even more benefits to volunteering. We notice a subtle shift in ourselves when we volunteer. We feel more connected to others. We build bonds and connect with new friends. We become less absorbed in the normal stresses of daily life. We share these experiences with others and want  to help even more.






We believe in the power of innovation. We create hope and opportunities. We help you to matter.

Work With Us.

Not sure where to start in your volunteering journey?

Your reason for volunteering should begin where your passions lie. Let your experience and skills create positive change in the world.

Allow your actions to flow from a place of passionate intention and interest. From there all the hard work will be worth it, you will be more committed to the cause and as a result, your impact will be that much bigger.

You matter!


Think about your "Second Life"

Sometimes you feel that you have started a new phase of your life. You accomplished an amazing career or you retire, or you survived a serious illness and now recognize what gift you just received.

Think about this opportunity. Your actions, whether big or small will have an impact on someone’s life. With us, you will work on projects that ultimately create opportunities and hope for generations to come because of you.

That is powerful stuff.



Volunteering, at home or abroad gives you the chance to vote every day about the kind of community and world you want to live in. It gives you the opportunity to be a part of something exciting and to take responsibility for the greater good.


Volunteering lets you meet people from all walks of life. It gives you the chance to form real relationships, the kind that can have a lasting impact on your life. You could meet your new best friend, future business partner or have a conversation that sparks a real change in your life.


It is important that you enjoy what you are doing so that you will continue doing it. Feel the satisfaction from accomplishment, from having an impact, and from learning something new. Feel proud of being a part of something bigger.


Did you know volunteering is an excellent way to boost your career prospects? It helps you create a positive impression, provides insightful, real-world experiences, makes you more innovative, creative and gives you a range of useful skills.
