It’s a phrase people have been taught since childhood, “Sharing is caring.” That’s why, as we grow in wisdom and careers, that sharing skills and time with others for a good cause or organization can improve overall health.
Volunteering is generally considered an activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain "to benefit another person, group or organization.” Volunteering is also renowned for skill development and is often intended to promote goodness.
Volunteering with and for others increases social interaction, whether it be over the phone or in person. Volunteering with NAPPS helps build a support system of other volunteers based on common commitment and interests, who will offer appreciation for good ideas and input. These people may start out as acquaintances, but end up as good friends.
New volunteers bring a lot to an organization. A new member is always excitedly welcomed into the group, hoping that they will bring a refreshed energy and specialized skills and knowledge to whatever committee they choose. If a committee has too much work and not enough members, the new member will ease the workload off others so that the work will be divided more equally.
For an organization that offers so much, NAPPS hopes that it’s members will want to do more for their organization and enjoy a sense of purpose and fulfillment with volunteering, knowing they are bettering NAPPS for current and future members. Members must realize NAPPS programs are implemented by volunteers. Ideally, volunteers will find their time and energy rewarded, so don’t hesitate, volunteer today!
