Volunteers are an asset to Intrinsic Foundation. Without the involvement of our volunteers, IF Cares would be unable to continue its Programs which meet the needs of children in our local communities.

You can make a difference in a child’s life. We challenge you to volunteer! Are you asking yourself, do I have the time? Yes, you do! It doesn’t matter how much time you are able to give, if you can only do a little… do what you can!

Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change lives, including your own.

Volunteer quote from Cyndi Novak-Simon

“Touching a young person’s life, one person at a time, through an encouraging word, while reinforcing the positive and bringing out the best can have the greatest impact and help provide guidance in their walk of life. IF Cares aligns with my mantra in life, giving support and encouragement to our children, through the 3 Es – education, eating healthy and exercise. These are the things I practice on a daily basis, which continues to inspire me to support what is near and dear to my heart. “
