10 Reasons to SERVE

10. 𝐈𝐭 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐬.
Volunteering provides valuable community services so more money can be spent on local improvements. Volunteers are the reason that some organizations are able to grow their resources and give to those that need it most.

9. 𝐈𝐭'𝐬 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮.
When you focus on someone other than yourself, it interrupts usual tension-producing patterns -reducing stress and the physical symptoms that come along with it

8. 𝐕𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞.
You can test out a career or, (like we did with ASB last year), learn how to build a deck!

7. 𝐈𝐭 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐦.
Understanding community needs helps foster empathy and self-efficacy.

6. 𝐕𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲.
As a volunteer, you support families, improve schools, support youth, and beautify the community. You get to invest in a world that you want to be part of.

5. 𝐈𝐭 𝐛𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫.
Not only does it build teamwork in general but it brings people from all different backgrounds to work towards a common goal. How powerful is that?!

4. 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧 𝐚 𝐥𝐨𝐭.
Volunteers have the opportunity to gain knowledge of local resources available to solve community needs. With certain organizations, they can learn about the functions and operations of our government. Volunteers discover hidden talents

3. 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐚 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤.
People like to support community resources that they use themselves or benefit people they care about.

2. 𝐕𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐚 𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐞.
You’re giving back to those that need it the most. Knowing that YOU are making things possible for others can create a sense of meaning. #motivation

 

And the number 1 reason to serve is...

1. 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐚 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞.
Every. person. counts!
No matter how big or small, YOU are creating CHANGE!❤️
