For many families, fall is a time when jam-packed schedules and conflicting priorities can pull parents and kids in opposing directions. Family volunteer engagement provides opportunities to slow down, engage in quality interactions, align values with actions, and exert a positive influence on the community. Family engagement also allows kids to fulfill school service requirements, explore social issues, and develop greater awareness about what really matters to them. In addition, kids who engage in community service are more likely to participate in civic engagement as adults. In other words, it’s a win-win for everyone!
As an organization that is deeply committed to the needs of families, Greater Richmond ARC recognizes the importance of family volunteer engagement that combines fun with meaningful service.
Make plans to join ARC on Saturday October 13 from 9-12:30 for a kid-friendly Family Work Day!
Registration is not open yet, but if you are interested, please send an email to Alison.firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the update list.
