Volunteering in Your Community
Volunteering is at the very heart of Orisa Lifestyle Agreements (OLA16). There are a lot of great reasons to volunteer. For one thing, volunteering gives you a chance to meet more people and network with people who are also devoted to Orisa Lifestyle. Business professionals should especially take advantage of the opportunities that volunteering offers to make new contacts and be seen in the community. Volunteering is also a great way to strengthen your devotion through serving others.
Volunteering can help your community and the environment. In addition, it’s good for you, too! Research has shown that people who volunteer are generally happier because they feel more connected to their community. They are also healthier, more active, and tend to live longer.
People often overlook the charitable work that is done by the company that they work for. You may find that your company is deeply involved in several charitable ventures with local organizations and your participation would be appreciated and even financed. Talk to the human resources professionals at your company and ask if the company sponsors or gets involved in volunteer work.
Talking to your local government and holding an event for local businesses are just a couple ways to get involved. What changes or improvements would you like to see in your community? What are the first steps to making these changes happen? Always remember that you have the power to make an impact by starting with the small actions of OLA16.
If you are interested in finding volunteer work in your area, then another good approach is to start attending community events and talk to the people who represent the various organizations. One of the great side-effects to attending community functions to find volunteer opportunities is that you get to discover the vast array of things there are to do in your community. When you start hunting for volunteer work in your area by personally networking with others, you will be surprised at the variety of new things you discover about your community.
Volunteering in your local area offers a lot of benefits. Even though you are willing to donate your time, you will still need to put in the effort necessary to find the organizations which are looking for volunteers. Along the way, you will get to meet new people and discover a whole bunch of new things about yourself and the community in which you live.
