Being a Volunteer
"You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give"
- Winston Churchhill
Provides a sense of purpose
Having a sense of purpose gives us clear reasons for what we want to do. This can be a goal in life that makes us want to study, work, or train well. People can work hard because of a true interest in their goal, rather than because they have to.
Confidence helps us feel ready for life's experiences. When we're confident, we're more likely to move forward with people and opportunities — not back away from them. And if things don't work out at first, confidence helps us try again.
Meet people and make new friends
Meeting new people is one of the most important and basic human needs. People inspire us, they make us feel wanted and valued. Meeting someone new who made you laugh, think differently, or just feel good, is often the highlight of a day.
Provides a sense of community
Strong communities are critical because they're often an important source of social connection and a sense of belonging. Participating in a community bonded by attitudes, values, and goals is an essential ingredient to enjoying a fulfilling life.
Learn new skills
Learning new things gives us a feeling of accomplishment which; you'll feel more ready to take on challenges and explore new territories. Learning new skills will open new opportunities and help you find innovative solutions to problems.
Fun makes you feel good
When positive emotions open us up to new possibilities, we are more able to learn and build on our skills. People who have plenty of positive emotions in their everyday lives tend to be happier, healthier, learn better, and get along well with others.
If you're interested in volunteering, please let us know and we'll gladly share the opportunities that are available!
