Because volunteerism has
changed over the past few de-
cades, more individuals are find-
ing their time more fulfilling and
enjoying the social aspects.
In the past volunteers would
generally conduct volunteer tasks
in a silo, by themselves, with
mainly off ice-related projects.
Now there are more opportunities
to help at local events, to serve
as cultural arts guides and assis-
tants, to be a Friendly Visitor and
even contribute as a member of
a nonprofit agency’s administra-
tion team. In other words, really
be with people! The best part is
meeting fellow volunteers and
sharing experiences.
You could be retired, you could
be working. You could be seeking
something new or different in your
life. If so-consider volunteering.
When you have the flexibility and
witness the much-needed support
and help you are giving to non-
profits, it’s a great feeling.
