Volunteering makes the
heart grow stronger,” said David Eisner,
CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. “More than 61 million
Americans volunteer to improve conditions for people in need and to unselfishly
give of themselves. While the motivation is altruistic, it is gratifying to
learn that their efforts are returning considerable health benefits.”
The Health Benefits of Volunteering documents major
findings from more than 30 rigorous and longitudinal studies that reviewed the
relationship between health and volunteering, with particular emphasis on
studies that seek to determine the causal connection between the two factors.

Academic mentors provide a window to the world.
Most of our volunteers help with one-on-one or small group tutoring of elementary-, middle school- and high school students in all academic subjects. In addition, we put a special focus on the arts, music, health and wellness and personal development. We also need volunteers to chaperone field trips, read to younger children, help with special events and projects, help keep our computers running, help with after school snacks, and many more activities. We have many, diverse volunteer opportunities and invite you to join us to today - call 414-344-2111 for more information.
We ask for a minimum commitment of one hour a week for most programs. In addition, all volunteers must pass a criminal background check.
Our volunteers make the work of Our Next Generation possible. Through one-on-one relationships, more than 600 volunteers each year make a lasting difference to hundreds of children.
