COMMUNITY SERVICE DIVISION (NRN-CSD)
Get Involved, Take Action
The mission of the NRN-CSD is to offer student volunteers a broad spectrum of volunteer opportunities that focus on but are not limited to, assisting elderly or impoverished families to improve their lives while teaching the values of giving and enriching the lives of volunteers across America.
The NRN CSD is the alternative volunteer opportunities sector of the National Relief Network Family of Companies. We focus on offering a multitude of volunteer opportunities from helping economically disadvantaged families to extremely popular eco-volunteerism trips including coastal and wetlands restoration, helping to clear state and national trail systems, and rebuilding wildlife and marine animal habitats following disasters such as the BP oil spill where our volunteers replanted more than 125,000 cypress trees in the wetlands along coastal Louisiana.
While offering volunteer opportunities that focus on improving the lives of others, our programs provide life-enriching experiences for our volunteers who develop leadership, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
With no membership fees, we help teach the values in altruism and volunteerism.
The NRN CSD trips are affordable and the cost is almost half of what other organizations charge for such programs.
By keeping the costs as low as possible, we have dramatically increased the number of volunteers able to lend a hand.
WHY JOIN US?
Through our program we enable students, high school and college, teens and adults to experience and appreciate the value of community service and motivate them to make such service a part of their life style for decades to come.
Participants will learn that volunteering brings as much joy to the volunteer as it does to the people they are helping.
Their volunteer efforts will not stop with the NRN CSD, but will continue locally with churches, schools, museums, hospitals, nursing homes, and with many other organizations and community events.
They will not only bring improvements to other communities through their efforts, but in the long run, they will be improving their own.
