Guest post by Florida New Americans volunteer Stacy Dupre.
The atmosphere was welcoming and my co-volunteers were inviting, helpful and very friendly. They made me feel welcome. I am of a shy nature and would not think about speaking in a crowd, but when I volunteered I felt so comfortable that I was able to speak to an audience.
This experience has been a healthy and rewarding part of my life, and I loved the experience so much that I will continue to volunteer. This is a good way to become more sociable, learn new and interesting things, meet different people and most of all help others. My first experience as a volunteer for the clinic will be a lasting memory.
So I urge individuals: volunteer your time. It is worth it and you do feel good at the end of the day knowing you made a difference in someone’s life.
And bring a friend along, be the one to pass on sure a privilege to them. Trust me, there will be no regrets volunteering.
