Gratifying community service opportunity to earn PDUs, volunteer hours & friends.

I am always looking to provide opportunities for my kids to improve their skill-sets, do a good deed, add a feather to their cap, etc. One of the benefits of this is spending quality time with them doing things that we all love.

Here is a truly worthwhile & gratifying opportunity for fellow project management professionals and high school students to earn their PDUs & volunteer hours respectively. Rebuilding Together Houston (RTH) is a non-profit organization helping financially-needy, aged and medically-challenged homeowners in Houston by repairing and renovating their homes at no cost. Each renovation project is managed by competent & professionally successful project managers. All the renovation work is done by volunteers, men & women from high-school students to management gurus.

My son and I volunteered last April for 2 Saturdays. Our feedback is as follows:
1. We thoroughly enjoyed father-son quality time working with fellow volunteers and using our hands & feet in place of iPad & X-Box.
2. Well worth the time invested upon seeing how we helped out someone who truly needed our support.
3. Enjoyed two days outdoors in the cool & sunny weather.
4. Networked & made friends with fellow professionals.

Rebuilding Together Houston is offering another opportunity on 2 Saturdays in October - 10/19/2013 & 10/26/2013. Volunteer teams are being formed. My son & I are in. Reach out to me if you would like to hear more details.
