Volunteering Tip:

When you volunteer, try and learn something new!

Yes, you’ve got something to offer, but what else can you get out of this experience besides the joy of giving back? Trying things that may be out of your comfort zone forces you to learn and adjust—a skill all of us can benefit from. Plus, you might find that you enjoy something you didn’t know about before.
