Volunteering changes lives!
¡El voluntariado cambia vidas!
Join our family! If you are interested in participating in your central Oregon community and helping others in need, step up and lend a hand. It’s just a matter of giving a bit of your free time, sharing your knowledge, and helping out.
Remember that if we don’t help each other we will never build a community we can truly be proud of. Join our Volunteer Team and make a difference!
¡Únete a nuestra familia de voluntarios! Si estás interesado en integrarte en su comunidad aqui en Oregón central y ayudar a otros en sus necesidades, las cuales creo que alguna vez todos hemos tenido, no dejes que eso mismo le pase a otra persona. No dudes en levantar tu mano y decir “yo me ofrezco”, “yo puedo ayudar”, “yo quiero participar en la comunidad”.
Es solo cuestión de regalar un poco de tu tiempo libre, de tus conocimientos, de tu ayuda. Recuerda que si no nos damos la mano entre nosotros mismos, nunca vamos a lograr una sociedad digna de admirarse.
"Voy a seguir ayudando hasta que ustedes me lo permitan!!! I love LCA!"
"I have really enjoyed and appreciated this experience. I feel much better connected with the local Latino community as a result. My time and efforts have been appreciated while my time constraints have been respected, without pressure to do more than I am able. Thanks for the opportunity to collaborate!"
The goals of our volunteer program include offering opportunities to the community to help increase our capacity to serve, providing bilingual support for community projects, increasing people’s skills and knowledge by way of direct experience, facilitating cross-cultural exchange, and developing new community leaders.
Oportunidades de voluntariado
Las metas de nuestro programa de voluntarios son ofrecer oportunidades a la comunidad para fortalecer nuestra capacidad para servirles, involucrarse con proyectos comunitarios, capacitar a las personas por medio de la experiencia directa, facilitar intercambios culturales, y crear nuevos líderes en la comunidad.
