Volunteers are critical partners of and participants in societies throughout the world. Sometimes when we are lost in the day-to-day activities of life and work, we forget there is a part of us that wants to serve and make a difference in the world. While careers do give a sense of satisfaction, there is a certain satisfaction we all get from volunteering and giving back to our community that is immeasurable. Volunteering will also enhance your resume as well as scholarship/internship opportunities. See Ms. Crump for a listing of local agencies needing volunteers for community service.
