Your time is valuable and gifting it will make a world of difference in the lives of many.
Help us make a meaningful impact in nurturing and empowering our youth!
Volunteers who anchor our programs, benefit in similar ways as participants in terms of understanding their own learning styles, exploring careers, experiencing real diversity “up close and personal,” Volunteers cite character and leadership development spanning an appreciation for genuine diversity, taking risks, learning from adversity and roadblocks, becoming more patient and perseverant, and experiencing ways to truly motivate self and others. Moreover, our volunteers become engaged in the broader community and meet businesspeople and retirees they otherwise would not encounter. These leadership skills and community-building experiences cannot be taught in a classroom. The true impact can be seen as Akimet’s volunteers become supporters of education, leaders in their own communities, other business organizations, school and foundation boards, their places of worship, and their companies.
