Our event volunteers are our most valuable resource. Event volunteers offer their valuable skills, time, and enthusiasm to ensure our events run smoothly. They are our important long-term partners that contribute significantly to the success of our vision and mission. Volunteering provides valuable community services so more money can be spent on our programs.
Event volunteers: Giving back is good for everyone!
Every person counts! Community service and volunteerism are an investment in our community and the people who live in it. Volunteering brings people together. As a volunteer you assist in:
Uniting people from diverse backgrounds to work toward a common goal
Building camaraderie and teamwork
Volunteering provides physical and mental rewards. Including:
- Reducing stress: Experts report that when you focus on someone other than yourself, it interrupts usual tension-producing patterns.
- Makes you healthier: Focusing on someone other than yourself also improves moods and emotions, like optimism, joy, and control over one’s fate, which in turn helps strengthen the immune system.
Volunteering your time promotes personal growth and self-esteem. You will understand the community needs and help foster empathy and self-efficacy. Volunteering strengthens your community.
You have the chance to contribute to the kind of community and world you want to live in by volunteering. You’ll have the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than yourself and assist in making a positive impact to our programs and events.
Recruiters rank volunteer participation higher than personal presentation when looking at prospective candidates.
Whatever your reasons, as a volunteer you help us further our mission to impact, an Aspiring Scholar at the Helm of Excellence.
