National Volunteer Month 2024

April is National Volunteer Month, when we celebrate the volunteers and supporters who help make our work possible. Whether serving as a Big, a board or committee member, sharing a story for the blog, helping out at the office or an event, sharing a special skill, or helping grow our programs as a site coordinator, we appreciate our volunteers.


Join us in celebration all month long! We’ll be sharing the stories, thoughts, and musings of some of our Bigs and Littles, talking about the impact they’ve experienced through their match.

Thank you to everyone who comes together year-round to ignite the power and promise of youth. You make our work possible, and we are so thankful for you.


Dedicated volunteers help local youth realize their potential in myriad ways. This Volunteer Month, you can join us by:

  • Becoming a Big, and provide priceless mentorship to a child
  • Sharing your skills (videography, landscaping, organization, etc.)

If you are interested in being a skills-based volunteer, please contact Kathy Praedel, Community Engagement Coordinator, at to learn more.
