Service is My Joy Program through Loyac

Re-posted from Mark's blog.

I think this is VERY important for young people - especially since there aren't a lot of programs for young people here and they can't get part time jobs in the afternoons.  Work or volunteering teaches you valuable life skills and I think they're both blessings for youth.


Loyac just kicked off registration for their “Service is My Joy” program. The program aims to bring young people to serve their community and draw smiles on the faces of others, through volunteering in various centers such as:
KACCH
Abeer 2
Down Syndrome Center
Kuwait Red Crescent
Kuwait Society for the Handicapped
Al-Kharafi Center
Foster Care Center
Elderly Care Center
Registration Terms:
- For youth of 15-27 years
- All nationalities are welcome
For registration and details contact:
Yusra Al Essa
Assistant Manager – Local Volunteering Programs
Telephone: +965 – 25727399 ext – 102
Email: servicemyjoy@loyac.org
Address: LoYAC – Bayt Lothan – Next to Marina Mall – Salmiya

Great post, Desert Girl. There are other places that offer people an opportunity to volunteer on a less formal basis (K's Path, Paws, Trash to Treasures, Operation Hope, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, etc). There's even some drop in opportunities.

There's nothing like doing a little something for someone else - rebalances the universe and one's personal perspective.
