My Westwood


Share your "you" with us

One of the best ways to meet people and get connected here at Westwood is to volunteer. We don’t want to stick you in a random volunteer job, though. We want you to tell us what types of opportunities speak to you. What fills you up? What are your passions and your gifts? What kind of time commitment works best for you? Our volunteer search tool will help you discover volunteer needs that gel with you. So you can share YOU with US. Not sure what your gifts are? Try our LifeKeys class. It’s a great way to uncover how you are wired and what types of activities make you shine.
