A person is held accountable for the bounties Allah granted him/her, including the person's time, knowledge and wealth. Allah grants great reward in the hereafter for those who spend from these bounties in ways that benefit righteous causes and especially those who concern themselves with attending to other people needs.
Yaseen Foundation as a community based nonprofit institution depends heavily on volunteers to manage its operations and deliver its services. Volunteers are the biggest asset Yaseen has. We are always in search for volunteers who can deploy their experience, education and skills to further the causes of our community and manage our organization affairs. Our needs span all fields and we can benefit from any level of commitment as long as the volunteer treats their contribution no less than the commitment they make to an employer. We need dependable volunteers to lead projects and others to work with the project leads to deliver them.
Volunteers enjoy the following benefits:
We have projects that involve facility maintenance and furniture setup that require handyman skills such as ability to use manual and power drilling and screw drivers, wood and metal cutting, furniture assembly, electrical work, plumbing work, etc. The following is just a sample:
Repairing banquet tables involve patching and sanding wood surfaces, leg replacement and staining.
These are regular facility operations related tasks that never end. Even through we have a cleaning service, we can't have the service every day, so we need to maintain the facility cleanness in between. Supplies need to be organized into a system and maintained. The following is just a sample:

Organize office supplies, media and similar
Wipe restrooms before and after each of the Jumaa.
We have IT issues to deal with like setting up computers, internet, projectors, printers as well as an ambitious goal to automate all of Yaseen affairs. This involves defining requirements, evaluating software, implementing software, developing integrations, etc. The following is just a sample:
