Volunteers are individuals who commit their time to helping a cause they care about, without the promise pay or personal gain. For SCOEN, volunteers are an invaluable resource. Volunteers can help SCOEN expand their services, devote more of their budget to their programs and furthering their cause, and free up their staff member’s time to focus on big picture work. Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your community, make new friends, and contribute to causes that are important you.
