Surrendering my free time to serve others, is often times not something I crave to do. Selfish ambitions take over, and consequently, I participate in activities I find pleasing to me rather than others. However, when I take the time to assist others and take action in my community, I have found that it is a rewarding experience. Volunteering has never led me to anything negative, and it has allowed me to be a part of a positive and uplifting experience. My desire to volunteer may consume my time, but the countless rewards I receive from volunteering are priceless. Offering my time to organizations has allowed me to become more humble, see the happiness it brings to people, and improve my social skills.
As a recent graduate of the Johns Hopkins University and a new Research Technician at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, becoming more familiar with different healthcare settings and helping others in doing so have always been of my interest. From my experience of volunteering as a piano teacher for inner-city children in Baltimore, I have learnt that even a small commitment and emotional support can make a big difference in the daily lives and the happiness of those in need. I have briefly familiarized myself to the hospital environment by shadowing physicians and conducting biomedical research but have yet to translate my volunteering experiences and the lessons learnt from them to the healthcare setting. I am a friendly, optimistic,
As a peace Corps volunteer there are trials that are expected on the field. Peace corps volunteers are placed in a community working to improve the challenges of the country in grass roots interactions. I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in a town near the center of Sierra Leone called Magburaka. The town was impoverished; there were very little access to basic provisions. In a year and half my definition of community started to form. Unfortunately, my time in Sierra Leone was cut short. All the Peace Corps Volunteers in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone were evacuated due to the Ebola Virus Disease. Being abruptly ripped away from the relationships, temporary home and projects was challenging and hard to endure. The experience reinforced my desire to make a difference and return to Sierra Leone once more. After a year of work in the states, I decided to go to Sierra Leone as Response Peace Corps volunteer and complete my definition of community.
I am interested in doing volunteering work with Atwell Martin in North Swindon. I currently work for the British Army as a Communication Specialist and would like to gain new skills and experience within real estate.
Volunteer work has always been a prominent activity that occurred within my life. Growing up with a father that was involved in the community so much that it felt like it was his job, I was always surrounded by community service and helping others. At the young age of six years old, I decided to do my part as well, feeding the homeless in a local church in New Bedford, Massachusetts. From that year on, I believe a majority of my most valuable characteristics derived directly from my volunteer work. Now, almost thirteen years later, I am involved in over 100 hours of community service per year and am ready to apply it into a new field- as a Resident Assistant.
I have unpredictable and severe epileptic seizures, idiopathic hypersomnia, depression, and anxiety. The unpredictable nature of my epilepsy has caused extreme difficulties in being able to attend classes on campus, work collaboratively with peers and mentors, and to continue my learning beyond the classroom. This has contributed to a significant impact on my learning and engagement in my studies.
Service learning has given me the new opportunity experience helping others and including myself. I enjoy volunteer work because It’s a way of giving back to the community, but also I’ve become confident in public speaking. In addition, volunteer work is a great rewarding experience, and it 's also helped me develop social skills, by supporting others. The contribute can make a positive impact in many ways, Barack Obama said, “ the best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the work with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” There are element that could promise will succeed in life, however, I believe to learn and discover. I will continue volunteering work whenever I can, and I strongly encourage people to join volunteer work because the meaningful impact the lives of their and help thousands of the students confront in reading. It was a great pleasure for me to contribute to the organization to the development of the community through Political Science class volunteering work. The impact that was able to make our community better future.
The past two summers I was fortunate enough to go on two mission trips with my church. Our group teamed together with other churches and we worked with the Carolina Missions Team or known as “CMT”. This past summer was defiantly an eye-opening experience for me being able to work with an underprivileged community. One of the things I learned and realized during this trip is that even though these people have very little of anything, they are still so willing to give other people they don’t know so much love and compassion. Having this opportunity to volunteer has made me more aware of the needs, not just for the people in our own country, but also those in other countries who have much worse circumstances. The experience has led me to want to reach out to those other countries. Hopefully one day being able to travel and give them the help, knowledge, information and hope they need to prosper.
Pursuing a degree in Anthropology provided me with the opportunity to learn analytical techniques that facilitated an appreciation for unfamiliar cultures and belief systems. College shaped who I am today, allowing me to learn and grow in a challenging and fostering environment. Participating in service learning and study abroad had a profound impact on my education. Collaborating with the Appalachian Community Together (ACT) Office I participated in two Alternative Service Experiences (ASE). These programs allowed me to volunteer during spring break within the United States and abroad. Upon completion of my first ASE, I developed a drive to make a difference. Subsequently, I spent the next spring break in Granada, Nicaragua working with the nonprofit La Esperanza Granada teaching English in a local school alongside my fellow peers. This program was an extraordinary experience that had a profound impact on my outlook of service leading me on a path of personal growth and my commitment to serving the community as an active and informed citizen. Gaining the tools to effect positive change is my
Volunteering in both a children's hospice and a hospital has given me the chance to significantly develop my emotional resilience and proficiency in communication, due to the contact with a variety of people and experience with children who are life limited, which can be very important in the health sector.
To understand the importance of volunteering, I volunteered at one cultural event in San Antonio downtown. It was the festival of Diwali, a festival of light celebrate in India every year, organized by the San Antonio municipal and Indian Association. In San Antonio’s downtown we have a Riverwalk and the booth was on one side of river with the bleacher and on the other side was the stadium. Folk dances of India were performed on the stage. I volunteered at a booth of drink. My job was to sell soft drinks like coke for a dollar. I made a working there on the booth and we both had almost same interests due to that I was very surprised. There was also another booth next to us. I helped them to load, carry and organize their booth with food. This
I am a good candidate for the job as I am very responsible. I have volunteered at RAL since January of 2015. While it is fun it is also a large commitment. RAL expects me to show up on time and ready to work; which I always am. At RAL I help take care of the dogs. I give the dogs baths, help give the dogs medicine, and clean the kennels.

There are still many options locally in Idaho Falls, such as the Head Start Program, which provides nutrition, parent involvement, health, and even a quality education services to children and families in low-income homes.
I’ve volunteered at a range of places of different causes. My time and experience with these charities opened my eyes to the range of issues that they were fighting and what people were victims of. But I also learned about different cultures and how some communities will respond differently
In 2015, I volunteered with the organization Medicine, Education and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere (MEDLIFE) to Lima,Peru. Their mission is to
