Our Family Roots volunteers are an incredible group of individuals that radiate the warmth and connection at the heart of our Family Roots program. Through immersion in the outdoors, this dedicated group of volunteers adventure, play, and grow alongside families to strengthen bonds, increase well-being, and promote resiliency.
You should see the way that Sylvia’s face lights up when she describes the Family Roots volunteers. Sylvia, our Youth and Families Adventure Lead, has been adventuring alongside these volunteers for many years. That’s what makes this group so special- their commitment and loyalty as volunteers with Power To Be. This group has been involved with Family Roots for at least three years, and before that, some were part of our community for upwards of 8 years as volunteers.
This enthusiastic group of folks jump into the program with both feet. When COVID-19 threw a wrench into the mix, they showed up to support in full-force behind the scenes to continue supporting youth and families. Most of these volunteers also work a day-job in the field with the same passion of supporting these folks; they do their 9-5, and at the end of the day, still find the time and space to give back. They bring unique wisdom and knowledge to this program, and it simply wouldn’t be the same without them.
