Taking time out and doing something will help make a difference to someone’s life screams out volunteerism to me. Volunteerism is doing something to make you and people getting affected by the cause feel good. Performing volunteer work and helping other people benefits you and makes God happy. Serving a cause greater than you is volunteerism. Taking the time to help someone who cannot help him or herself is volunteerism. Providing those in need is a little boost to climb the ladder of success in volunteerism. Anyone can help out and make a difference in the community. All of these things make a difference by being kind and friendly to your community and wanting to make it a better place. You can help your community. Volunteerism is a way to express you and to make the world a better place. Volunteerism can be done anywhere from volunteering at a local soup kitchen to walking people’s dogs for an hour. Volunteerism can be done whenever and wherever if the person in charge is okay with it. People volunteer for a number of different reasons, ranging from a desire to learn new skills, having fun, or to make a difference. Some are completely devoted to the cause, while others simply wish to do their bit where they can. In actual fact, many of the reasons for volunteering abroad are the same as those for volunteering at home but here there is the added bonus of getting to travel. However, volunteering abroad is a much more meaningful experience, taking you further out of your

No Day But Today
As soon as I was told I would be volunteering in the elementary, I was very hesitant and
did not look forward to it at all. I have never experienced being around a lot of children at once
so I was worried that either something was going to happen to one of them, if one choked, if one
fell and got hurt severely or what to do if they started crying. I was not expecting to be changed…
Volunteering for Change
We sometimes hear people talk about the benefits of volunteering; the perfect way to reach out and touch the lives of others in a positive way. However, I didn’t fully understand the impact of this until I started volunteering myself. In middle school I volunteered at my local senior center, singing and reading to the elders. Today I have moved on to bigger projects, like hosting bone marrow drives and blood drives. Helping others is the greatest gift you can give…

The Positive Impact of Volunteering
The world is filled with problems and it needs volunteers to join together to help tackle and solve these problems.
A. One day I was going to the beach with my sister and her kids. We go out of the car and ran towards the beach. When we got there we saw that the beach was filled with litter and broken bottles everywhere. The beach was so filthy we decided to head back home. Needless to say, the kids were not happy. We all were so…
Most people start volunteering in their community for personal reasons such as benefits and getting extra credit in a class or how good it will look on their transcript. I decided to help tutor elementary kids afterschool to be an encouragement to them in their academic life. Little did I know that these kids would actually help me develop into a responsible young woman. Agreeing to be a tutor and a mentor to these kids was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
I remember my first day…
Volunteering and being an active member in my community has been an important part of my life and has made me who I am today. For this reason, I believe I relate most to the value of service. Community service has given me a safe haven, taught me leadership, self-worth and the value of giving back.
From a young age I accompanied my brothers and their boy scout troop; participating in various volunteer activities such as clean ups, feeding the less fortunate and other service projects. This instilled…
