Why becoming volunteer within Alimentar Enseñando?

The world is not a perfect place, and many people, places, and communities need help. Governments and professionals try to meet everyone’s needs, but it’s impossible for them to do it all.

This is why people become volunteers: because they can make a difference where someone or something needs help. If people never help each other and only care about themselves, the world becomes a crueler, sadder place. But when we volunteer our time, money, or talents, we help make our planet a better, happier home where people work together to make life easier for all.

Are you thinking, “What’s in it for me?” The answer is, plenty! Here are some of the things you might get in return for your giving:
# Making new friends
# Gaining important skills and experience that will help you later in life
# Making connections that can lead to a job or career
# Seeing more of your community and world
# Building confidence and self-esteem
# Exploring what you want to do with your life
# Feeling needed and important
# Feeling satisfaction at getting things done and helping others
# Meeting people who could be role models
# Using your mind, body, and creativity
# Getting active and healthier
# Relieving stress
# Fighting boredom
# Spending time doing what you really care about
# Gaining an edge on getting into college
# Feeling like you’re part of a community
# Having fun!

Hey...it looks like being a volunteer gives as much good stuff to you as it does to the people, places, or animals you’re trying to help! That’s the secret of volunteering. People who become volunteers usually lead richer, happier, and more satisfying lives than those who don’t volunteer.
