Communities thrive when residents and organizations are committed to helping one another! At the Y, we rely on the dedication of volunteers to make our mission a success within communities. Volunteering can create great change within communities and positively impact those who are providing their time and abilities. On Make a Difference Day 2018, we’d like to emphasize the importance of giving back and share a few steps you can take to get involved!
Every community has members that experience hardships or are in need of additional support. Individuals of all backgrounds, ages, and capabilities can make a difference in their communities, whether their contribution is big or small. Here are a few steps you can take to create change:
Find a cause- volunteering for a cause or organization you are passionate about will keep you motivated and committed to making a difference.
Self-reflect- outline what skills and services you can offer and a time commitment that fits your schedule.
Get Involved- Once you’ve identified your capabilities and a cause join a volunteer project or event!
Have fun- The benefits of volunteering are endless! Enjoy your volunteer experience and the chance to help others.
Continue to make a difference in the lives of others! Visit the YMCA’s volunteer page regularly for new opportunities!
