Calling All Program Volunteers!
Next Volunteer Orientation is:
Monday, March 24th, 2014 from 6:30p.m.-8:00p.m.
Thursday, March 27th, 2014 from 6:30p.m.-8:00p.m.
**This is a two-part orientation, and you must be present for the first part in order to attend the second one.
We have many opportunities for you to be involved directly with Lifeline. We are constantly in need of teachers, mentors, substitute grandmas, office workers, and counselors to help with the care and training of our residents. We provide the training for those positions that require it, but mainly what we need are people to take an interest in these girl’s lives, and show them what it means to be a responsible, caring adult.
You Can Make A Difference
Our volunteers realize that everyone leaves footprints on the sands of time. Our prints are made by the imprints of our lives on others. A person is remembered for the weight of his or her character. For marks of accomplishment. For shapes of kindness. For length of compassion. For width of personal warmth. For generosity. For values.
When we leave positive impressions behind, we enhance the lives of those we touch and a part of us lives on through them. We give them footprints to follow.
Lifeline Volunteers have the opportunity to change the course of America by changing the course of one life. They have the opportunity to contribute their time and life experiences. Our volunteers are truly ANGELS! They call themselves Angels WINGS, Angels WORKING IN GOD’S SERVICE. There is training, monthly informative meetings and an opportunity to participate in a merit system to earn “wings” and “halos” through hours served.
