Building Community Through Volunteering

Building Community Through Volunteering
With Val Walker, MS, Educator, Author
Thursday, April 6, 1-2:30 PM
Virtual (at your home) or In-Person at Land of Sky Regional Council, the YWCA of Asheville, Generations Ashe, or Maple Crest at Lee Walker Heights Community Room
Volunteering is not only good for our health, it’s a solid way to build community, fellowship, and friendship. It helps us grow a sense of belonging as well as a sense of place. By getting to know and appreciate what’s in our surrounding community, we have more opportunities to break out of isolating situations—or break out of our own shells by sharing our sense of purpose and the joy of serving others.
Participants at this event will hear from author Val Walker directly, connect with others who have similar interests, and meet the volunteer coordinators with local organizations. There will be virtual and in-person options throughout Western North Carolina. Those who attend in person will receive the added benefit of lunch provided by AARP.
