If you’re tired of your same old routine and itching to do something new with your free time (aka the weekend), we’ve got something for you. Are you interested in performing community service? Want to share your athletic skills? Love pets? We might have the thing that you’re looking for! Read on for ideas to help you get started volunteering.
1) Be a PET-SITTER at Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)
If you are passionate about animals, and want to extend a hand to loving cats and dogs that are looking for new homes, why not volunteer at PAWS? You can help out by actively participating in their campaigns, or if you have some creative skills, help them design fliers and brochures. You can also assist in their clinic or just help clean up the animal areas in the shelter. Of course, the best part is you can help in taking care of the dogs and cats by feeding, stroking, and hanging out with them! Imagine being surrounded by adorable pets from AM to PM!
There will be a volunteer orientation on May 6, 2017, 10 AM to 1:30 PM at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC), Aurora Blvd. Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights Quezon City. Please contact 475-1688 or email email@example.com for more details.

YSA gives free training sessions in volleyball, basketball, football, badminton, flag football, net ball, table tennis, wrestling, touch rugby, track and field, lawn tennis, and fencing to children ages 4 to 17 years old.
