For Mentors and Volunteers

When it comes to changing the world, you do not need to know everything. You simply need to get involve and do it! Get your hands dirty and just show up! In many areas of our lives, if you want something special, little or large, we have to serve it. The same is if you want your grass to grow, we have to water it. If you want children to learn, we have to educate then. This is how things work, right? Saint Francis Assisi said, "it is in the giving that we receive." When the heart is in the right place, whatever we do, large or small, will always succeed.
