FAMILY VOLUNTEERING

Want to spend time with your family doing something fun, meaningful – and that makes a difference for others? Volunteer together! Don’t know where to find an opportunity? If you live in one of the six cities where DGT has a listing, simply subscribe, and get a description of 5-10 family-friendly opportunities in your inbox each month. Then choose one that fits your family’s interests. If you live elsewhere, try VolunteerMatch or choose from the fun activities on our Pick a Project page.

Talk to your child: Make the most of any opportunity by reflecting before, during and after your volunteer adventure. We offer questions to get the conversation rolling.
