Volunteering and Community Service strengthens your community. It ‘s a wonderful way of giving back to where you live.

How to volunteer: Volunteering isn't like school. Instead of having the choices made for you about where to go and what subjects to learn, you get to choose what really interests you and who (or what) is most deserving of your time. Here are some tips: After you've discov- ered what interests you, decide how much time you want to spend and what fits into your schedule. If school, sports, or other commit- ments prevent you from devoting time every week – then look for volunteer opportunities you can take part in once in a while.
