“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.” — Barbara HallI


Pathways To Volunteering is an entry point to volunteering. The approach is simple we connect first time volunteers to handpicked opportunities to give back. This experience is rewarding for both the volunteer and the person in need and/or organization we are serving.

Of course, everyone is welcome to volunteer. PTV isn’t just for first time volunteers. It’s a place for anyone who wants to get involved and give back to the community. And we do put focus on finding opportunities for family friendly activities.

If you have any questions you can always contact us via email. Start with craig@beginyourpath.org or call us at 818-493-1256.
