Henderson, Nev. – If your New Year’s resolution to volunteer more has already turned into a good intention, the city of Henderson can help you get back on track. According to Time magazine, volunteering is one of the top ten resolutions most often forgotten. The city of Henderson Volunteer Partnership Program is an online resource that can help you reach out and find an opportunity to volunteer.
“As a community we are so much stronger when we work together and share our time and talents,” said Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen. “This program is a great way to connect with each other and make a difference in our community.”
The Volunteer Partnership Program helps match groups and individuals needing assistance with volunteers who want to give back locally. Those seeking volunteers can register their projects online through a simple application on the city of Henderson website. Residents who register as volunteers can list their skills and experience. Individuals and groups are then able to search the database and match their interests.
Those searching for a project can choose from any or all of 12 categories including clerical, education, cleanups, and assistance for seniors. Whatever their skill, interest or passion, the Volunteer Partnership Program helps groups and volunteers find each other and the resources they need.
Besides helping others, volunteering can be a great way to develop new skills, learn more about career options, make friends or new professional contacts, get exercise, or even just shake up your routine.
There is no fee for the Volunteer Partnership Program and the city does not screen, sponsor or endorse any group or volunteer. For more information, contact Emily Lewis at 702-267-2008 or visit cityofhenderson.com.
