Opportunities for Kids (Young Hearts) & Families

There are so many ways to support our mission through volunteerism and we understand the importance of getting kids involved with philanthropy at a young age.

Who are Young Hearts?

Young Hearts are youth (middle school and under) who, along with their schools, peer groups, and/or families, engage in God’s Love volunteerism, philanthropy, events and education.
