I urge you to volunteer your time

Guest post by Florida New Americans volunteer Stacy Dupre.

stacy-dupre-volunteer-fna-clinic-april-2013My name is Stacy.  I recently volunteered at a citizenship clinic with Florida New Americans.  It was my first time ever volunteering and I must say it was an amazing experience.

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.
