The Messengers of Light is looking for volunteers for a variety of functions. We always have a demand for fundraisers such as grant writers or event coordinators.
It is great to make financial contributions but more important is the generosity of the individual to donate their time and effort. Volunteers are the backbone of success and they play an essential role at The Messengers of Light, complementing the work of the local educators and care-workers.
The Messengers of Light couldn’t do all our programs without the work of people here in the USA. We have individual, corporate and special events fundraising committees. We are currently seeking volunteers for the following:
