WHY: This is the beginnings of community support. Knowing there is someone who cares enough to ask about you can make all the difference in moral decisions.
WHY: Community org.’s exist to solve a problem, often a very specific one. This allows you to know what problems exist in your community, you just might be able to help.
WHY: Mentoring is dying in our country. The mentor/mentee relationship is extremely fulfilling. You have a skill…pass it to someone who wants it, it will change both your lives.
WHY: With more involvement more can be accomplished. Plus, people need you. My heart is in criminal reform, my suggestion is to connect with a local jail, prison, or institution and volunteer. Rehabilitation programs are desperately needed, there are an abundance of programs but very few people to administer them. 2 hours a week can change 1000 lives, literally.
