A LITTLE THING TO KNOW ABOUT VOLUNTEERING


Did you know that approximately 35% of people between the ages of 15-24 will spend, on average, 140 hours a piece this year devoted to volunteer activities. To think... Some people consider students lazy!!

In all fairness, we must consider why students are volunteering at such a rate. For most, the truth is "out of necessity". Everything is getting more competitive: courses, schools, jobs. Students are just trying to keep up or, in some cases, stay ahead of their counterparts/competition.

One way to do this has always been volunteering for an organization. Today, it just so happens that in order to stay on par with the rest of the student body, you are going to have to spend a few more hours than you probably expected.

However, keep in mind that the advantages you get with volunteering happens to be much more than just a "Resume Builder". Take advantage of the opportunity. While it is obvious that you should choose an organization that supports a cause that you support, you should also consider the so called "real world" experience that it can offer.

Many organizations seeking volunteers are engaged in multi-million dollar projects. The expertise required for this type of undertaking brings together some of the brightest minds in the world. Playing even a small part in a large endeavour can prove to be very rewarding.
