If your are not able or ready to be a resource parent, there are many volunteer opportunities available. Dedicating the “3 T’s” (your time, talents, or treasures) is invaluable to foster youths’ support and development. For instance, you could attend an in-service training as a guest speaker and share your expertise and experiences. You could also host an event or sponsor youth to attend an event. The possibilities are endless.
