Volunteering: a desire, a requirement, a passion

Many young people donate their time to participate in various activities in the community for several reasons. Some do it because it is a requirement for graduation from high school, others because they belong to a church, or to meet new people. What they do not imagine is that the benefits of doing so are beyond the simple requirement fulfilled or channel their energy into positive action.

By volunteering in the youth awakens the sense of social awareness and responsibility for himself. Many times this benefits the youth, their families and friends in different degrees. Believe in him and all who share responsibility or hear of their experiences an obligation to do something and not be indifferent to the plight of others. Moreover, it is said that when a young donate your time, energy or power tends to do throughout life, resulting in an endless and your volunteer time in a generation of people who care about the community.

Furthermore, in my experience I have seen the statistics back me up, that young people who engage in some kind of volunteer are less likely to fall into any destructive behavior (alcohol or snuff, unwanted pregnancies, etc.). At school perform better than one that does not. Automatically and progressively develops respect for self and others, social tolerance and racial differences, patience and desire to help others.

If young people have at home, contribute to their education and community looking for options to make them today and always volunteers.
