Why shoud I Volunteer?

Volunteering helps you give back to the community.  All of us have come to this world with nothing and depart with nothing.  What we accomplish in this world, is worth reflecting, assimiliating and analyzing.  Volunteering is a way to serve the community without expecting any gains or reward in return.  It is being compassionate, gracious and thankful for our lives.  Whether one is a believer or not, it brings great happiness and joy to be able to share our resources and do something for others without any hidden motives.  It defines charity, giving or as it is said in hindu culture, Dāna (Devanagari: दान).

How can I Volunteer?

To volunteer, you fill out the volunteer request form. When you submit the form, it helps us to notify you of upcoming opportunities that match with your chosen preferences. 

What happens when I Volunteer?

Once you receive confirmation of your volunteering details, you will be assigned a mentor who will work with you, provide orientation and ensure that you have all the necessary infomration to successfully complete the assigned project and have a great expereince.  Suggestions made by volunteers are valuable to us.  They are periodically reviewed. Yet, at times it may be inconvenient or not possible to implement them in the overall context.

Will I get a certificate of completion?

The short answer is yes.  Certficiate of completion is provided on request only.  Students, interns, job seekers and those providing mandated community service can benefit from obtaing a certificate upon completion of a volunteering activity.  Please notify us upon enrollment if you are in need of a certificate.
