National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week, a signature event, celebrates ordinary people doing extraordinary things to improve communities across the nation.
Remember that rewards can take many forms. They don’t need to cost money or consume hours of time.
Rewards let people know that you care about them and recognize and appreciate the things they’re
doing for you. Some rewards are obvious, others more subtle.
First of all, SMILE!
Smile, be pleasant and treat people with respect and courtesy.
Meaningful, have a clear vision which allows members purposeful and worthwhile participation.
Image, model what you want members to do and project a positive image. Listen, interrupt
yourself in order to focus and actively listen; displaying your interest and concern.

Get Your Inspiration On
The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering:
Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good.
