Why Family Volunteering?
One of the best ways to instill kindness in KIDS is to give them the opportunity to give back in a fun + age-appropriate manner. Together with their FAMILY, we enable young children, ages 5 and up, to engage with give-back projects that directly benefit those struggling within our community.
Getting out + giving back through meaningful + intentional volunteer projects is an easy way to craft next generation leaders. By volunteering at a young age, we are creating a generation of KIDS who will see a need, work to solve it + put more good into the world.
Because you're never too young to volunteer ♥
A Mom on a Mission
In the midst of the busyness of sports, extra-curriculars + every day life, Victoria Hannley began to recognize that something was missing. Even though they would talk as a family about social issues + ways to help people in need, Victoria realized that her kids needed to get out + experience first-hand the needs in the community.
As she began to seek out opportunities to give back with her kids, she soon found that kid-friendly volunteer projects were hard to come by. So she started creating her own opportunities with local non-profits that were not only interesting but would help her kids make the connection between the give-back project + who they were serving.
Amazed at how much her three kids enjoyed the various volunteer projects, Victoria wanted to share these experiences with other kids + families. And so the idea for Tucson Family Volunteers was born with the same goal for all kids as for her own - that KIDS make awesome VOLUNTEERS!
Donate + Support Kid Volunteering
We rely on the financial support of the community to be able to create family volunteering projects that are fun + meaningful for kids. Your donation will help us continue to offer Tucson-area families with in-person + at-home volunteer projects + craft a generation of kind, caring kids. ♥
