About this title


Volunteerism is presented as an attractive and accessible means of creating bonds and teaching children the value of helping others in this practical guidebook for families. A wide variety of volunteer opportunities are discussed, including work to benefit the environment, wildlife, young people, the homeless, shelters, the community, the arts, seniors, and the physically or mentally challenged. Suggestions for getting started are provided, along with space for a family action plan, photos, and memorabilia and reminiscences.

From the Publisher:

Does your family’s quality time together consist of gulped down sandwiches in the car on the way to softball practice, soccer or piano lessons? Do you wish you had more time together – but the thought of even one more activity sends shivers down your spine?

These days our lives are rushed and overscheduled. While pursuing all of our interests, we forget the importance of carving out time to spend doing something together as a family and to helping others. Family Serve: Volunteer Opportunities for Families helps families find solutions to this dilemma by showing how they can volunteer as a family unit in their community.

Through volunteering together, families can share a sense of purpose, build self-confidence and learn new skills. Parents can teach their children what it means to be a contributing member of a community and help them to develop compassion. Volunteering gives families a chance to be together, work side by side, and discuss issues facing the world today.

With colorful illustrations and written in a highly engaging style that can appeal to youngsters as well as adults Family Serve guides families through the process of choosing a project they will all enjoy, detailing dozens of resources for volunteer opportunities. A family discussion focused on questions such as the following will help to zero in on the right one:

· What are some general categories of volunteer opportunities in which we’re interested? (Environment, young people, community, etc.?) Which causes interest us?

· Do we like working on our own or with a group?

· Can we make a short or long-term commitment?

· Do we prefer a rigid schedule or something more flexible, like visiting residents at a nursing home?

· What would we like to learn from volunteering?

· What does our family hope to accomplish?

Once a project is chosen, readers will learn how to proceed, with a host of ideas and resources, including local and national organizations in several areas such as: environment, animals, young people, homelessness, hunger programs, senior citizens, arts/culture, health, and many more. The book provides a "Plan of Action" form and a family journal for notes and photos.
