Yusef Shabazz, Executive Director Baltimore Educational Enrichment Program Coalition Board Secretary
"The benefits of volunteering are too numerous to list - not to mention many are unexpected. When a formerly troubled young person blatantly begins to show signs of pride and self-esteem as a result of learning a new skill, or knowing that someone cares, or understanding a concept I've helped to practically explain to him/her -- the benefits are simply immeasurable."
