Whether you’re a new or veteran parent you will always gain insight into the activity that your child loves by volunteering.  It is time well spent and a lot of fun! So, about volunteering…no experience necessary. No, REALLY! There are tasks that require specific skills, but most opportunities do not.  If you can fill a cup with lemonade, hand out a program, use scissors, sew, or build props – you have all the skills you need. There is so much to do, you are bound to find something you’re great at.
