Volunteers of America: engaging community and providing positive role models

Volunteers of America provides high quality, innovative services for disadvantaged and disconnected children and youth. Through our caring staff and dedicated volunteers we ensure the social, emotional and academic development of young children, and empower older youth to be physically, emotionally and mentally healthy and ready to enter adulthood. Our programs provide support for young people and their families through mentoring, and community engagement opportunities.

Our Action Teams, in Partnership with Major League Baseball Players Association, Volunteers of America, and the Major League Baseball Players Trust, joined together as national partners in 2002. A major part of the partnership is the personal involvement of Major League Baseball Players in raising public awareness regarding Volunteers of America and its programs with the goal of encouraging young people across the country to volunteer in their communities.

Our programs provide support for young people and their families through mentoring, team building, and community engagement opportunities.
