There are many reasons why people volunteer in their communities – The Universal Declaration on Volunteering best describes the values that PVRC follow and uphold-”volunteering brings to life the noblest aspirations of humankind – the pursuit of peace, freedom, opportunity, safety and justice for all people. Connections can be made across differences that push us apart so that we can live together in healthy, sustainable communities, working together to provide innovative solutions to our shared challenges and to shape our collective destinies.”
