When you give of yourself with no expectations that positivity will come back to you.
Volunteering is the act of giving ones time and effort with no expectation of monetary gain. It is so important to find the time and opportunity to volunteer in order to create and facilitate positive change within our world.
I have noticed that American culture places great value and import on volunteering. What a wonderful thing! When we give our time, knowledge and expertise in order to help others grow and succeed it can be a learning experience for everyone involved.
Some of the organizations that I support by volunteering are:
The First Tee, they have a fantastic model for fostering and encouraging volunteerism in order to positively impact our youth.
The GCSAA, their model focuses on using volunteerism to build and grow the superintendent field.
National Golf Day is a wonderful opportunity to connect volunteering to advocating for the golf industry.
These are just a very small sampling of opportunities available to volunteer your time. I encourage everyone to find a way that they can volunteer in order to create positive change in our communities and in our world.
One small act can create a ripple.
