There are so many things CHARISM wants to do to bring the community together…but we just can’t do it all ourselves! We are so grateful for the time our volunteers give to help CHARISM build stronger neighborhoods in Fargo. With the help of volunteers, we can offer support, learning, and fun to at-risk children, youth, and adults. Together we can work together to Build STRONGER neighborhoods, we are so excited for you to get involved!

Are you interested in hanging out with some awesome kids, planting flowers and vegetables, teaching families how to cook, showing kids how to do a crazy science experiment, or making our neighbors feel welcome? Check out these ways we can get you connected to helping CHARISM, then fill out our individual volunteer application or our group volunteer application!
