WORK FOR FUN
Everyone can do something to make our community better. Many families in north Visalia are working hard to make ends meet but sometimes that means that kids don’t get access to opportunities because of lack of extra money.
We believe that all kids should have access to positive activities regardless of economic situation. In order to partner with families to create opportunities for their kids, we created a program called Work for Fun.
Work for Fun is designed to encourage kids to learn to serve others and make their neighborhood better. In return for their work, kids earn scholarships for fun activities and field trips.
THE BENEFIT OF WORK FOR FUN
Access to New Opportunities
When Houston School students and families are presented with new opportunities to make their community better, they’re excited and willing to contribute.
When opportunity and reward is self-chosen and earned, instead of given, it brings dignity to those who are participating.
Service projects will better our community and create a greater sense of ownership for students who participate.
In order to run this program, we need 50 volunteers for every work day. Volunteers of ALL ages are welcome to come and work with us!
