Volunteering can change your life too. Why is it so rewarding?

  • You can work for an organization and mission you believe in.
  • Having a positive impact on others feels great.
  • You can meet new people and develop new leadership skills.
  • Family volunteering lets you spend time with loved ones while helping others.
  • Volunteering is fun!

Another avenue for volunteering is through your local Veterans Administration (VA). Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs facility nearest you and ask for Voluntary Service. Tell their staff of your interest in becoming a VAVS Volunteer. The staff will take care of everything else including your interview, orientation, and assignment!

You are still assisting PVA because when you register with the VA, you can let them know that you are volunteering your time in the name of Paralyzed Veterans of America.
