Reach Out!

People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others. But it’s also OK to want some benefit for yourself. You may wish to learn something new, build your resume, make new friends, or be part of a team. Instead of considering volunteering as something you just do for people who are not as fortunate as yourself, begin to think of it as an exchange.

Consider that most people find themselves in need at some point in their lives. So today, you may be the person with the ability to help, but tomorrow you may be the recipient of someone else’s volunteer effort.

In these tough times, pay it forward.

Whether it be time, friendship, experience, elbow grease or good old cash, you have something to offer to improve the world around you.
