Enjoy Time with Family

There’s nothing like spending time with your children, especially when you’re doing something active: gardening, serving at a soup kitchen, visiting a homebound elderly. Spend time with your children in an active, meaningful way.

Enjoy Time to Give Back

We’re all busy. When you spend time with our Families programs in Pittsburgh or NYC, you know that a few times a month you’ll be giving back, and showing your children the importance of giving back and serving their community.

Enjoy Time to Build Community

Our volunteers are parents and children, all dedicated to spending time with loved ones and making the world a little better. Meet other families with your values, build your community in your local neighborhood.
