About Volunteer

There's a special feeling you get when you have the chance to actually "touch" the lives of the people who need help. That's why so many of our stories on Sparkt give you opportunities to make a difference in your community by becoming a Volunteer.

No matter what touches your heart or imagination, the organizations and individuals we feature will give you great ways to get involved. Love animals? We've got stories of volunteers putting their efforts into shelters and rescues that could fill an ark! Passionate about helping people trying to help themselves? Join the volunteers coaching low-income women returning to the workforce, or those helping homeless people find a safe place to live. Want to make sure no one is hungry or lonely in your community? Pitch in with the restaurant owners who cook a holiday meal for anyone in town who has nowhere else to go. Have a spot in your heart for disadvantaged kids? Join volunteers at the many after school or tutoring programs we've profiled. The choices are endless!

We'll give you links to the volunteer opportunities in our stories so that it's easy for you to find out more and sign up. If there's not an organization in your community that appeals to your volunteer spirit, we'll provide the resources to make a difference by starting one of your own!
