There are many rewards attached to volunteering. Helping others and feeling good about your community are two that first come to mind. For some students, they may bee searching for ways to fulfill “Community Service Requirements“.
If you are someone who has spent many hours volunteering, you may not understand why there are people who don’t get involved. Conversely, if you are someone who has never volunteered, you probably don’t get what the hype is all about.
We often think that volunteering takes a certain kind of person; but the truth is that people who volunteer their time actually feel better about life and humanity. They have learned that the secret of happiness is appreciating what you have and sharing it with others. Happiness is a mind set. There is no better activity in creating happiness than going out and finding a cause where you can make a difference. It really doesn’t matter what you do – the only thing that is important is that you become proactive and take some kind of action.
