ALL of HavServe’s activities are only made possible through the generous financial and in-kind donations of our volunteers and other supporters around the world. We know that volunteering benefits both society and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity, cooperation and reciprocity; and by creating opportunities for growth and self-empowerment. Volunteers experience personal and professional growth, build character and develop leadership and empathy. These are among the many reasons that we make a point of engaging youth from local Maryland communities and beyond, as volunteers. We provide local youth with mentoring, leadership development and volunteer opportunities that encourage growth and help foster a sense of global awareness and partnership with their peers in Haiti and beyond.
