Volunteerism (n) – the policy or practice of volunteering one’s time or talents for charitable, educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one’s community.
People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others. But it’s also OK to want some benefits for yourself from volunteering.
Currently, I am the Chairman of the Freehold Township Education Foundation. I chose this organization at this point in my life because I have 2 children in the Freehold Township School District. I figured it was a no-brainer to get involved in helping our district become recognized on a national level. And I am happy to say that with the hard-work of all of our volunteers and the commitment of our administration, the FTEF has been able to play a role in doing just that.
