Volunteering lets you see your own life in new ways. Sometimes it’s easy to worry about stuff like grades or get upset because you don’t have the most expensive sneakers or the newest computer game. Volunteering allows you focus on others for a while.
You will enjoy volunteering. Volunteer experiences often put us in a different environment and expose you to people and situations that you wouldn’t have come across in your regular life. Example, you might learn that just on the edge of your town are some kids who really need winter clothes or a hot meal.
It feels good to be able to meet a need like that. Thanks to you, some kids have warm coats, hats, mittens, and boots.
