Troy Hebblethwaite, Butler R-V High School, is the Executive Director for the Butler-area Youth Center, a facility providing a safe and educational environment for kids. He spends 20-25 hours at the center each week, running activities, making reports to the Youth Advocacy Board, preparing fundraisers, and spending time with the kids. Since he took on this volunteer position in July, attendance at the center has almost tripled.

"The pay stinks, the headaches are real, but nothing can replace or measure up to the glow that stays in your heart and your head from volunteering."
