The Gift of Volunteering
March 10, 2019
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
Volunteering and community service is often associated with directly helping others in dire need. Kenneth Jeon hosts and interviews Becca Tankersley and Dominic Maciel from LionsHeart, a nonprofit organization focused on inspiring teens to volunteer in their community, creating a new generation of leaders that are dedicated to positive social impact and providing needed resources for causes that ignite their passions. Katie Choo, author of the chapter on Volunteering in the new book, Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World, joins Kenneth to discuss the importance of volunteer work. The importance of helping others without expecting anything in return can’t be stressed enough, however regardless of the reason why one volunteers is important to help others. Be the Star You Are! offers numerous volunteer opportunities, virtual and in person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
