Member Benefit Spotlight: Youth service clubs

Adults who volunteered as youths are twice as likely to volunteer as those who did not volunteer when they were young, says a study by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Case in point: Modern Woodmen member Kacie Przybylo.

Kacie began volunteering in her hometown of Dunfermline, Illinois, as a member of her mother's Modern Woodmen youth service club. The club provided opportunities for Kacie and other youths to attend monthly activities, go on educational field trips and serve their community.

"Seeing my mom's impact on our community was inspiring, so my involvement was an easy choice," explains Kacie, who started her own youth service club in Canton, Illinois, in 1999.

"Volunteering lays the foundation for children to grow up and become valuable members of society," says Kacie. "It's so rewarding to have that kind of impact."
