Volunteering is a great way to support us, and make a difference in our community. It can also be an opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. If you'd like to give something besides money, consider lending your time and talents to organizations that are important to you.
- Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of people working to make your community a better place. You'll make the jobs of everyone working to help deserving students a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of community support.
- Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting feeling than knowing you have made a difference in the life of a young adult just starting on his/her journey in life. Who can't use another loyal supporter in life?
- Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends—and not just acquaintances. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.
- Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.
- Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service.
- Enjoy giving. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?
