It sure seems like the world is getting more competitive. From college pedigrees to work experience, employers are looking for more and more ways to screen applicants so they can build a diverse and highly skilled workplace.
One way to set yourself apart from the crowd is to show that you are volunteering in Kansas City. Not only does this show your compassion and willingness to lend a hand, but it shows you are a vested member of our larger community.
Volunteering is also a great way to hone your skills and develop new ones. Even more important, it provides an opportunity for you to share your skills with others so that they can develop their own skill sets. Whether your skills are math, construction, finance, marketing or simply the ability to listen to others, they can be used to strengthen our community in so many ways.
Equally as important, volunteering in Kansas City helps you develop your leadership and team management skills. These are skills employers genuinely appreciate, and it is something that can’t be taught; it must be learned on the job.
When you volunteer, you have an opportunity to discover what it takes to lead, and the ways you can harness your team’s skills and experience as you direct them towards achieving their goals. The knowledge you’ll gain, and the experience you will acquire through volunteering will therefore serve as a foundation that you can build a career upon.
Volunteering in Kansas City is something you will never forget. Not only will it change your life and help you develop new skills, but it will change lives within our community.
That’s why we do what we do at the Love Fund for Children. We invite you to contact us to learn more about the ways you can get involved.
