Since 1979, the New York Life Foundation has focused its support on times of transition for young people–following the loss of a loved one and during the shift from middle to high school, as well as engaging the workforce to give back in the communities where they live and work. In addition, the Foundation has convened experts to share their perspectives, especially in light of the coronavirus, on how to support youth, families, and community. In this episode of the - New York Life Foundation series called ‘Ask the Expert,’ we explore how volunteering is a good mental health strategy.
This video features Chris Jarvis, co-founder of Realized Worth, a consulting firm focused on engaging employees in Corporate Citizenship programs, and Matthew Nelson, corporate vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, New York Life, discussing the rise in virtual volunteering during this uncertain time and how to make it a transformative and meaningful experience.
