We need people who will devote time and energy towards our projects. To understand the aspects of DeKalb Kids and their needs. Those who will passionately desire to see change within those connected to our organization.
Seeking to find any volunteer opportunity which allowed me to work with children, I reached out to DeKalb Kids Project Inc. I was working multiple jobs and felt the need for a more fulfilling and rewarding way to spend my time besides sleeping in on the weekends. My first event was MBK where I served as a volunteer for the teens during the event. It was a great opportunity, I met some wonderful people, took some pictures, and witnessed a life changing event take place within the young men that were present. It was amazing as I watched the outwardly young men transform into sensitive young boys as they revealed their hearts and connected with the speakers. Moments like this add value to life and is what connected me with DeKalb Kids Project Inc.
Serving is apart of who I am and knowing that everything I do comes from the heart is the most rewarding part. I believe that everyone has something unique to offer. The very thing that you have to offer cannot be imitated, duplicated, or given on your behalf. You must arrive, be prepared, and present. Work hard and make it look easy! I’m a GSU alumna, BS in Managerial Science focusing on HR pursuing a career in Human Resources. I love God and serve in nearly every area from dance, Helps, intercession, and Fundraising. I spend my time volunteering with DKP as the Volunteer Director, visiting friends and family, and trying to find the nearest park to relax!
