Feed your soul

Volunteering is good for the soul.  As individuals, we all have unique talents and expertise in one area or another.  Displaying our talents and expertise allows us the opportunity to contribute to our community.  You’re making a difference, by helping to make others feel good which makes you feel good too!  That’s huge!

Self development

What a way to hone in on individual growth! Volunteering with an organization is a great way to enhance your outlook and world view.  You learn more about the community you serve, and you also learn more about yourself in the process.  We are creatures of evolution (most of us any way).  The experience can help shape a better version of yourself.  Who knows?  You may discover a new talent.  Be your best self!

Make some friends

Volunteering is a great way to meet people from all walks of life.   Often times, people form solid lasting bonds with each other through the volunteering experience.  We all could use genuine connections with others that are positive and motivating.  After a certain age, we get set in our ways and we all claim it’s so hard to meet genuine, nice folks… perhaps it is because they are out doing their part in making the world a better place…  It’s just a theory.  If you test it out, be sure to come back let me know!
