VELA, “The Light of the Community,” is committed to raising awareness of the importance of Family Cohesiveness and of promoting Healthy Lifestyles in the Spirit of Volunteerism.
VELA’s Programs, Projects and Activities are aimed at creating a Linkage between Families and Individuals who will improve our Community through Volunteerism, by providing services that will Enhance our Neighborhoods.
Volunteering is a great way to Develop New Skills and Learn the benefits of Sharing and helping others through Team Work, which are all Valuable Volunteer Traits.
Volunteers will always take away with them a better sense of Community Pride, Mutual Partnerships, Leadership Skills and increased Self-Empowerment. High Schools and Colleges require Students to get involved as a Volunteer. VELA offers Students the means in which to Meet those Requirements.
“I Promise to Serve and Support my Community with Dignity and Pride, to always be Warm and Friendly, Respectful to Others, Honest and Committed to sharing the Spirit of Volunteerism.”
