Story - Volunteering

As a young person, it is important to learn how to help others. Volunteering time to assist people instills values in young people in addition to helping the community. One way a young adult can volunteer is through organizations that have been established. There are charities that assist the poor by providing meals for them. Shelters need people to cook meals for the homeless. Another way includes providing warm clothing to those who need it. Besides looking in their own closets for blankets, coats, gloves and hats, young adults could ask their friends and others to donate to this cause.

Animals also need help and young adults can volunteer at a local shelter that houses animals. Usually, the tasks include cleaning up after the animals and walking them, so young adults need to feel comfortable doing this. If transportation is an issue, neighbors can always provide assistance for other neighbors. Walking the dog of a neighbor who may be sick or elderly is a good way to volunteer.

If there is a cause or charity that is important to a young adult, but there are no volunteer opportunities available, things still can be done to help. Charities and causes always accept monetary donations. Even though young adults are usually not wealthy, they can fundraise. They can set up a page on a fundraising site. Another idea is to sell crafts or food items on a warm summer day to make money for the charity. When people are out at garage sales on a Saturday morning, young adults can sell items as well to raise money for their charity.
