Leadership Series: Part Two


Finding the time to Volunteer

Making the decision to become a volunteer is a lot harder to do that one would typically assume. As a volunteer, you offer to give up your time to help another person or cause. From a young age, many individuals might believe volunteerism is actually a task. For example, many elementary, middle, and high schools ask their students to have a certain amount of “Community Service” hours by the end of the school year or summer.

Kennedy, and successful innovators like Bill Gates. The quotes reveal the many definitions of leadership and how individuals can not only become a leader, but also reach their goals in the process.
