Our volunteers are the heart of The Laurel Foundation. Each year, over 200 volunteers donate approximately 13,500 hours to improve the lives of at-risk children, youth, and families who are living with HIV/AIDS, and transgender/gender diverse youth. Volunteers are truly the lifeblood of The Laurel Foundation. They are the change agents in the lives of the children, youth and families that we serve.
Through our extensive trainings and intensive volunteer experiences, The Laurel Foundation is not only changing the lives of at-risk children affected by HIV/AIDS, transgender youth and other at-risk youth populations, but developing dynamic leaders who are using their learned skills to better their communities and to change the world.
By volunteering with The Laurel Foundation you will become part of a vast network of creative, passionate and talented individuals working in a variety of socially dynamic professions, but most importantly you will become part of a community that feels like family.
When you volunteer with The Laurel Foundation it will be because you want to change the life of a child, but what you will discover is that your life will also be changed tremendously and you will grow in ways you never thought possible.
