I've wanted to get involved in some kind of volunteer organization up here in Dallas - I found YAVO by searching for volunteer opportunities for young adults in the DFW area.
Yep! I'm 23 years old.
I'm looking forward to all kinds of volunteer work. I have experience with things like wheelchair ramps and general home improvements through missions trips I've gone on over the past several years, but I'm also excited about getting to work on all sorts of other projects! For me, any opportunity to give of myself on behalf of others has the potential to be such a fulfilling experience. So I don't try to limit myself to just one kind of work - I want to get out there and try it all!
I'm a first year seminary student at Perkins School of Theology (SMU), planning on serving in ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church after graduation. Before coming to Perkins, I was in Houston at Rice University (I grew up in H-Town too!).
