Volunteers: Enriching Lives - Creating Community
"At the heart of volunteerism are the ideals of service and solidarity and the belief that together we can make the world better. Volunteers share their time. They share their skills and talents. Above all, they share a human experience. They know that the true measure of success in life is not what we gain but what we give back to our fellow men and women."
- Former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Anan
