About

When we volunteer, we are each trying to satisfy the needs of our heart, mind, body and soul in a unique way. Each of us will then seek different things from participation in LSN.

  • Purpose…discover and fulfill personal purpose and goals.
  • Networking…new opportunities.
  • Learning…personal development, mentoring.
  • Social…make new friends.
  • Spiritual…live your faith.

Banner - Our Identity

Purpose:

  • Add value and meaning to people’s lives.

Mission:

  • Grow the capability of people in need by inspiring and enabling volunteers and non-profit leaders to serve to their purpose, passion and potential.

Vision:

  • We “connect” people to deeper service…professional-to-professional and volunteer-to-professional or organization).
  • Tools and coaching are available to people and organizations to solve real-life problems and serve to our potential.
  • LSN is the “go to” organization in NKY for life skills and volunteer solutions.
  • Network members share their time and talent with each other and the community.

Identity:

  • We exist to build capability in people struggling with life (the poor, debt burdened, unemployed, young and old) AND the volunteers AND the organizations serving them.
  • Your volunteer experience will be richer because of your participation with the Network. You become a “skill builder” and your community becomes a better place to live.
  • Relationship building between non-profit organizations and high-level volunteers will strengthen capabilities in both.

Principles:

  • We are faith-driven, serving people in need (we role model Jesus).
  • We equip people with new, stronger, life-long skills (teach people to fish).
  • We offer hope and prosperity (there are better days ahead).
  • We trust (it’s private, you can share).
  • We respect (non-judgmental).
  • We are humble (it’s not about ego).
  • We grow as we serve (it’s two-way).

Banner - Other Information

LSN does not have a physical address but we are fortunate to have a friend and partner in the Life Learning Center where we spend a lot of time.

LSN does not do direct service. Each volunteer selects their own organizations for whom they serve.

We are not a 501c3 because we are money-less.

We are not a religious organization but many members are faith-driven (non-denominational).

The network is supported by volunteers in many ways. This includes an advisory team, wiki authors, event planners and project leaders.

Volunteer NKY is a movement to encourage social service volunteerism.  People helping people.

Vulnerability is hard. But what can make it even harder — needlessly so — are the inaccurate assumptions we hold about it.
