Awesome Volunteer Leslie Larson Mentors & Empowers Pre-teen Girls

August 24, 2012
Leslie is a mentor with Kids With A Promise (KWAP), a ministry that seeks to serve NYC’s most-at-risk children and youth by loving them unconditionally, and providing a caring, nurturing environment where they can learn and grow. Tell us about KWAP: They are very up front and clear that it is intentional about the kids’ spiritual development. There are a lot of programs that help with homework, college and career advice. But at KWAP we always begin with a devotional prayer to show them what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ.

Awesome Volunteer Lucy Bradshaw Goes Across Cultures to Serve

July 12, 2012
Lucy teaches English and basic computer skills to Arab-American immigrants. How did you get connected with the BAAFC? Before I moved New York City, I’d been involved with international people for about 5 years. That’s my passion, my calling. Yet, I had a hard time finding a place in the city to volunteer with. I spoke to an HFNY staff member, and told her about my heart to help underserved internationals, and that’s how I found out about the BAAFC.

Awesome Volunteer Kevin Sterling Uses His Design Skills to Serve

June 20, 2012
What have you enjoyed about working on these PIA projects? I think I've really enjoyed going to neighborhoods and places that I honestly would never have gone to. For Brooklyn Jubilee, we went to a health fair in Flatbush, a very historic Brooklyn neighborhood. I've lived in the city for five years and never had a reason to go there. We went for a photo shoot to get some of the Brooklyn Jubilee people in action. It was very rewarding to get a perspective on someone else's life.

June 13, 2012
Hope for New York hosted its annual Awesome Volunteer Appreciation dinner last week-- more than 200 committed volunteers, volunteer team leaders, and Hope for New York affiliate staff gathered to celebrate the work our volunteers are doing to serve the poor and marginalized across New York City.
