Why YOU should volunteer

 

Reason #5:

To Gain Leadership Skills

 

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things.  He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.

                                                       –Ronald Reagan

 

To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.

                                                  –Eleanor Roosevelt

 

There are some people out there who are natural born leaders and there are others that strive to be leaders.  While volunteering we are usually put into a situation where we are all equal and there is not one person who has an overwhelming amount of experience over another.  This situation gives those who want to be leaders a chance to step up, take charge, and work on their organization leadership skills.

 

Volunteering is an overall great experience.  It gives us the opportunity to learn about ourselves, to learn about those around us, to build new relationships, and in some cases of international volunteering we can learn about a completely different culture.  Whatever our reasons for volunteering may be, someone’s quality of life is benefiting.
