Volunteering is a great way to gain new experiences and insights while helping members of the community.
If you would like to volunteer, here are three opportunities that may be right for you:
Established in 1989, the [Kidney Foundation of the Greater Chattanooga Area]( strives to provide help to people diagnosed with kidney disease. It is an independent organization, meaning that all of the funds raised benefit local communities. Patients are assisted with transportation, medication, food, and much more.
The Kidney Foundation is always looking for volunteers to help with events, community education, and general foundation assistance.
Boys and Girls Club of Chattanooga
For more than fifty years, the Boys and Girls Club of Chattanooga has helped children take themselves out of poverty. The kids are put on a track to graduate high school, and everyone is challenged to embrace a healthy lifestyle and push beyond their expectations.
Volunteers are always welcome, and opportunities include coaching football, tutoring math, and teaching cheerleading.
Since 1900, the Chattanooga Zoo has provided a happy home to animals from around the world. Its mission is to inspire visitors to preserve wildlife through innovative exhibitions and educational offerings. The zoo is fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and it's a non-profit organization that depends on the community to thrive and grow.
The zoo offers an array of volunteer opportunities including the Education Department. These volunteers are specially trained to help prepare educational materials as well as help with exhibit talks. They must work at least 72 hours a year and attend periodic training sessions.
