Volunteer

 
 
A little time makes a BIG difference! Volunteers are at the heart of LSDMO, providing positive role models in safe, structured, physical and creative activities for Texas kids. It’s mentoring at its best! Studies show that these activities teach kids valuable skills—like teamwork and self-discipline—that last a lifetime!

If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail: qtee50@earthlink.net
