The Rewards of Volunteering....

Volunteers can make a positive impact on our student's lives. In the school setting, volunteering helps support school districts with less funding. It provides an opportunity to make a difference. Volunteering not only helps the students, but supports our teachers and paraprofessionals within the classrooms. It also supports the vision and mission of a successful organization like Berrien RESA. Volunteering not only helps others...., it helps YOU! Volunteering is fun and rewarding. It gives you an opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, or build skills you are working to develop.
