The volunteers that come through Wesley Community Center each year bring enthusiasm, skills, and resources to our clients and the organization that are invaluable. We want to make all of our volunteers' experience a meaningful one.
We encourage your corporate, church, or civic organization to share in the opportunities available at Wesley in making a difference in the lives of others and in the community.
