With a number of programs that offer ways to volunteer both at home and away, FBB gives humanists a variety of opportunities to come together for the greater good. Details about all of our programs can be found at our website which lists each program and a number of subheadings about the history, mission, and how to join.

FBB is grateful every day for the volunteers that make our work possible. Together we are Humanism at Work!


Beyond Belief Network must have resolved to continue being their awesome selves in 2017, because they have not skipped a beat! BBN teams reported more than 40 events and contributed nearly 1,500 hours of service in January. Tri-State Freethinkers is our January Team of the Month. At two different events, Freethinkers assembled 550 boxes of food for distribution to needy seniors in their community. Volunteers prepared and served brunch for more than 30 women at the Bethany House homeless shelter and prepared dinner for the homeless at another shelter where they played games after the meal. They also volunteered twice to phone bank in support of the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and Planned Parenthood. In addition, Tri-State Freethinkers made sure to make their voices heard and their presence felt at the We Are Kentucky Days of Action gathering at the Kentucky State Capitol on January 5th and during the local Women's March on January 21st.
