A New Way to Volunteer for Assistance League’s National Office

Have you ever thought of using your skills to support Assistance League’s national office but decided against it because it would take time away from your important work at the chapter level? Not anymore!

We now offer different models of service commitments to our volunteers through our newly restructured committees, sub-committees and task forces structure. Your service to the national organization can be as small or as expansive as you desire. Looking for a 1-time project, 2 hours/week or possibly 2 hours/month? We have the opportunities for you!

Please use our Interest Form, to indicate your areas of expertise and availability to support the national office, and we will match you with the perfect opportunity. As we continue to reimagine Assistance League, our scope of work is very different than ever before, and we are looking for your knowledge and support! This form will be available on an ongoing basis, though we will look to engage volunteers at the national level in mid-September.

Thank you for considering joining our team. You won’t be disappointed!

Any young person moving out on their own needs certain essentials, but it’s particularly true for those who were raised in the foster care system as children, have turned 18 and are now adults.

It’s called “aging out,” the process of a youth transitioning from formal control of foster care toward independent living. In Michigan, approximately 13,000 children are in foster care, and about 1,600 young people age out every year when they reach their 18th birthday.
