National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, and this is a great time to recognize volunteers and celebrate the spirit of volunteerism.
Volunteers may work for free, but they will tell you that they are well paid. They say that the reward for their work is the satisfaction of helping others, active involvement in the community and the friendships that form through volunteer work.
That is just what Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau volunteers do. Without their outstanding, dedicated volunteers, LAYSB simply could not complete its mission to ensure the success of youth.
At Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau, more than 100 volunteers help the youth and families served in a variety of ways. Some of the volunteers help in the LAYSB office, plan youth-focused programs, mentor, plan fundraising events, teach life skills or share a hobby. Other volunteers listen to the youth who are first-time, low-level offenders in need of positive adult role models and the opportunity to make amends with their victims.
To volunteer your time and talent for LAYSB, contact Andria Sterbentz at 651-464-3685 or Andria.Sterbentz@ysblakesarea.org.
