Youth Volunteer Opportunities Fair - October 23, 2016
Our Second Annual Youth Volunteer Opportunities Fair was another big success. Please see the booklet below for a brief description of each organization that participated and their volunteer opportunities.
How the Youth Volunteer Opportunities Fair got started:
Last summer, in conversation with the youth of First Congregational Church, representatives of the church’s leadership team heard that the youth want to be “doing” for others and, when possible, would like to interact with those they are serving.
In response to our youth’s desire to help others, First Congregational Church decided to create a Youth Volunteer Opportunities Fair. The fair will provide youth (5th grade and up) with an opportunity to meet representatives from local organizations, learn more about the organizations’ missions, and have the option to sign up for current service openings. The Town of New Castle and the Chappaqua Central School District are supporting and will encourage the youth of New Castle to participate in this Fair.
The Chappaqua Library, New Castle Historical Society, Northern Westchester Hospital and Chappaqua Cares have already committed to the Fair and are excited about the possibility of recruiting youth to assist as volunteers in their organizations. This is a unique opportunity to offer youth in the Town of New Castle a place to learn about and sign up to volunteer.
