For the past two years I’ve worked with a local organization, TAASC, which helps disabled adults and children participate in action sports. During the winter months I help teach and assist with their skiing program and in the summer with paddleboarding and canoeing. It’s been a very rewarding experience. Nothing compares to that smile and the joy that you share. Volunteering is a key part of being a contributing citizen and it is one of the best ways to give back to the community. It also introduces you to students and experiences outside of your field of study and offers the potential to discover new interests and friends. During my years at Ohio State I plan to take advantage of volunteering programs and look forward to broadening my education and leadership
In my community, I volunteer immensely with the 4-H and FFA youth in Pima County and Arizona. I am a cavy judge at local shows throughout the year, as well as a certified shooting sports leader to teach 4-H members safe shooting techniques with rifles. I was also given the opportunity to volunteer with Future Farmer of America student members through my sorority, Sigma Alpha. I will be volunteering with the Meat Evaluation CDE at the State CDE Day, and have applied to be a Camp Counselor at the Arizona State FFA Camp held at Camp Shadow Pines in Herber, Arizona in June. Volunteering with youth involved in agriculture has allowed me to give back to a community that gave me so much during my youth. 4-H transformed me into the young woman I am
As an incoming high school student, I have already started thinking about college. What do I need to do to get them to notice me? What do they look for in a student- volunteerism, leadership? My parents helped me figure out what I could do to separate myself from others in a positive way. Just like every other kid, I have many extracurricular activities and play sports, but none of them stopped for a second to think about ways to help others instead of helping themselves.
Sign up, volunteer, benefit your future! Volunteer work is where one will donate their time or efforts to an organization without being compensated.

Throughout my high school years I’ve volunteered to finish my hours that were required to graduate additionally I knew I would keep on helping even when I've finished my hours. I'd help in campaigns for a few days which I had to make calls to voters and put up signs as just 1 of 3 places I've volunteered. Another is an organization called MEND which stands for “Meet Each Need with Dignity” where I'd go for 1 year every Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. Within MEND I entered in the food bank section where one stacks, organizes, and sorts food. In addition, in putting my time to assist people by caring their necessaries to their destination as well as lead and be a guidance to others that just begin to help out. I've dedicated more time as a

Hello GCV&M Volunteers, I want to thank everyone who has signed up to volunteer for this weekend’s event, Fiddlers’ Fair!
During my freshman year of high school, I wanted to do something more meaningful than the previous volunteering I had done in the past. Most of my volunteer work had been with children, and although those experiences were worthwhile, I wanted to do something to help those less fortunate. So,
Does volunteering have a decisive influence on discovering me? When I registered the house-repairing activity at the Kochang, South Korea, rather taking a vacation on someplace different, I called it a win-win circumstance based on experiencing various skills on manual labor while meeting the call of others. However, far from the trite reaction of feeling great because I am serving others, I perceive not just contributing to our community is vital in itself, but assisting others more serves me to learn and intensify further about my character; to come to be a PA, withholding a sheer willingness to devote my knowledge to others is imperative. Moreover, Because of my past as being part of the marginalized population, I learned the brutal life
I am an individual who truly loves the feeling of being useful and helping out. That is why I love to volunteer for task in which I need to do something, such as running back and forth to help a team out, or answering any questions a person may have.
Every student has heard it all before. From counselors and teachers, and even some parents, you've heard all about making sure to get your hours. "Get your hours for college," They say, "It'll give you a boost in your resume." But when it comes to service work, it's important to recognize that volunteering isn't just something to check off before graduation. That's what I had thought when I spent last few summers at my church helping with bible school - tolerating incessant and rambunctious children - and standing for hours in the heat helping with various outdoor fundraisers. What I hadn't realized before was that volunteer positions, the ones that might have actually fit me and would have benefited me, are kind of like a job, and like jobs - they're hard to come by. The level of commitment to invest in a worthy cause hadn't crossed my mind (not until I accidentally landed my first steady volunteer position).
In the field of psychology, the functional approach to understanding altruism is the predominant one. Central to this approach is that people engage in various activities for purposeful, goal-oriented reasons (Fletcher and Major 2004:110). Related to the functional approach is the Volunteer Functions Inventory, created by Clary et al. (1998), which is based on the functional approach to understanding altruism. A functional perspective towards motivations to volunteer is chiefly concerned with the “why” of volunteerism (Whitt 2006:10). Understanding these reasons for volunteering, is important and could give us concrete answers as to why people would participate in long-term volunteering. The issue of sufficient support networks for people in need is very important. It has a very crucial role to play in the well-being of people. We all need support when we are going through difficult times and knowing that there is someone there for you, someone who cares, can make all the difference in the world.
