Why should I volunteer?

This should be the time to give back to your community. But how much difference can you make in a day?
 
In a day you can make a difference for many people by simply helping one person because volunteering doesn’t help just the person you directly helped but the people they know it becomes a avalanche effect where assisting rolls on to the next person and the next.
 
You can make impact in your community in different ways. Through Truth Organization for Youths, you can volunteer to review resumes, conduct mock interviews, be a tutor or mentor a youth. In addition to giving your time to make a difference, you can also give your gently used clothing and household items. By organizing a simple donation drive, you can change lives in your community.
