Here at brothers in need we understand it’s important for our youth to experience volunteering as it shifts the focus from individual needs to societal needs. It’s also an opportunity for the youth to foster new relationships, develop job skills and compassion.
Some of the programs we engage the students in are:
- The Homeless outreach programs
- Visiting individuals with different abilities
- Packing essential items for the homeless and refugee community
- School workshops
- Nursing home visits
*Different programs for different year groups
*Program requirements vary
Majority of young individuals nowadays do not know much about themselves or even much about what goes on within the community.
To educate students in school on the way they should interact with others.
You can sign up to be one of our volunteers and visit some of the workshops. You can facilitate the workshops if you like. Or you can simply donate whatever you can.
