With busy lives and hectic schedules, trying to fit in volunteer time may be low on the priorities totem. Why should you try to volunteer for charitable or social organizations when you’re already strapped for time?
Do it for your kids.
No, not in the sense of being their Girl Scout leader or bringing snacks to their Little League game (although those things are important, too!). Do it with your kids. Make them part of the volunteer process. Get them involved. There is compelling evidence that shows just how beneficial volunteering is for children — and the younger you start, the better.
Think there aren’t many opportunities for young children to volunteer? Think again. More and more organizations are recognizing that, to get people involved, they need to open up their volunteer options to a wider range of ages or make them family-oriented service events.
How do you find them? Join MHA and Doing Good Together on Tuesday, October 18th at 7 PM to find out! This workshop is FREE for MHA members ($10 for non-members).
Send an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and join us for a fun, inspiring workshop that will open up new volunteer ideas for you and your kids.
Your children will thank you for it.
