Have some time on your hands?
You may be in-between jobs or simply on vacation from college or school. Or taking a gap year.
Finding something but fulfiling and relevant for you, in the long run, may be difficult to do.
If you are aspiring to help heal the world and apply your self in different nations, you may be interested in this.
I am a great proponent of volunteering one’s time to a worthy cause. In my view, it is servant leadership and gives you an opportunity to give back to the community that has given to you in one way or another.
Volunteering is a great way to get much-needed work experience
Before getting your dream assignment or work in that organisation you badly want, the first place to start in building your resume is by volunteering for other organisations. They may be smaller or for shorter periods, but it helps you perform better in the long run by preparing you for the contract you want.
Volunteering can help you earn a living and support your family
In exchange for your time and dedication, you will receive allowances that can help you meet your saving goals, investment goals or to support your loved ones back home.
It provides you with an opportunity to gain a fresh perspective of life
Living life in someone else’s shoe, experiencing the factors surrounding them that have shaped them can bring light to your mind. Help you count your blessings and teach you to appreciate the simple things in life. Hearing of other people’s stories can also help you to make better life decisions.
Has the capacity to enhance the lives of the people you are helping
Seriously, you can change someone’s life. And not only that you can change the world. One assignment at a time. So many pandemics globally rely on humanitarians to step in and help heal the world. You can be a part of that story as well.
Teaches you something new different every day
The perks of travelling come when you are completely immersed in one’s culture. You get to appreciate their social structures, tradition, fashion, food, skill and even language. If you love the experience of learning something new this is a great way of keeping your life exciting.
There are a whole lot more reasons out there. Find what you love and keep offering yourself up for leadership. The world needs you.
