Summer Volunteering is Beneficial for Millennials
Summer volunteering is beneficial for Millennials.
The concept is also a great way for Millennials to help out in their communities all over the world, wherever they may be.
Not only does summer volunteering get Millennials out of the house, but it also allows Millennials to enrich their character, and skills in an environment away from their normal daily lives, and their workplaces, especially if their employer or place of employment does not do scheduled community service days, and projects on a designated day where employees take off work as a company and volunteer their time.
While the time may be done in public spaces in a Millennial’s community, such as a park, there are many ways that Millennials can give back individually over the Summer themselves.
These include: assisting with services at a soup kitchen, helping people register for 5k races, and other charity events, and more informal actions like picking up garbage, or hydrating people on a hot Summer’s day, by simply providing them with bottles of water so that they don’t become dehydrated, and also stay alive and well.
Doing these actions make Millennials feel good shortly after they do them, because they are performing kind gestures for others.
Millennials might also be pleasantly surprised to find out that volunteering their time in their communities, especially during the Summer months, is good exercise, and helps them burn calories because of the good natural work out that they receive.
Some Millennials may be uncertain about whether they want to volunteer or not, while others will immediately jump at the opportunity, and the chance to meet new people, and make new friends while taking part in a good cause.
The unofficial start of Summer, Memorial Day weekend, is just a few weeks away so it is important for Millennials to get a head start with groups or organizations that they may want to volunteer for, as spots could fill up quickly.
At the end of the day, whether it’s in the few-week time-frame, at Summer’s official start, June 21, the adrenaline rush to submit any of the required information needed to selflessly volunteer, will be well-worth it for all Millennials who participate, and make the world a better place than it already is.
