Families are finding new ways to spend time together-and volunteering is one way to do just that. Research has shown that volunteering as a family:

- Helps families learn about social issues and provides a new perspective on the world

- Provides positive role models and passes on family values to children

- Provides new learning experiences and development of new skills for both children and adults

- Provides quality time for the family to spend together

- Increases interpersonal communication and the problem-solving abilities of family members

- Helps youth decide what they want to do with their life

 

Read the article below by Mei Cobb, Director of Volunteer & Employee Engagement at United Way Worldwide, and learn how your family can start a good holiday tradition by taking advantage of National Family Volunteer Day.

And then visit www.wevolunteer.org for local volunteer opportunities.
