Unexpected Benefits of Volunteering

In collaboration with DuCAP,  today we had the first of our series of three workshops on volunteerism! It was an exciting experience! Co-led by youth leader Isaiah Montgomery, the session included:

  • Sharing volunteer experiences. Participants recounted the first time they recall volunteering as well as volunteer experiences as recent as last week.
  • An interactive volunteerism game
  • Discussion of local needs, including the surprising stats on the level of local food insecurity. 
  • Discussion of unexpected benefits of volunteering. Participants were surprised to learn of the many personal benefits of volunteering

According to the youth participants, the biggest takeaways include:

  • The unexpected benefits of volunteering such as career exploration
  • That there are far more volunteer opportunities than they thought
  • The needs in our local community
