But recently, I had the pleasure to finally visit their new location at 215 Centre Street. And I must say, the difference is night and day.

The intangible benefits (greener neighborhoods, a brighter learning environment, motivated and successful youth) can be felt. What many don’t consider or measure is the impact of service on the volunteer himself or herself.
