What does it mean to serve your community?

Life isn’t all about money and fame, it’s about striving to be the best person you can be and the journey to accomplish this deed. Sure wealth is important, but happiness does not necessarily accompany dollars. This is where serving your community kicks in, where having money and using it wisely for the greater good goes way further than spending it on a new television set or that new iPod you want. It is not a coincidence that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet set up foundations to help others in need.

However not having riches is not an excuse not to help others, to not serve the community. Baruch teaches us these high values, to strive to be better. In Baruch Honors, we have to be even better than the rest, as without the gracious donors we would not be in this great program today. Serving as a role model to others is an honor, and because of this I am constantly striving to be a better person. My role in Baruch is to be a great scholar, in the sense that is to be open minded and to help others around me.

Baruch Honors scholars should volunteer openly, not having to be prompted by anyone. Volunteering at a non-profit organization is an example, helping a friend in need is another. Giving your time and effort to a greater cause is not only beneficial to others but also to you. It is kharma, “what goes around comes around”.

The culture that the Honors Program instills in us exactly promotes this. After all, if it wasn’t for others helping the community, we would not be where we are today.

Miro, I agree! Helping others does help us too. How has volunteering helped you grow as a person? And how do you hope to grow through volunteering next semester?

Thanks for all your work Sam. Volunteering has shown me that altruism is possible in some cases, whereas before I believed it was something out of a story-book. It has really opened my eyes to the countless problems we have everywhere from our country’s poverty-stricken citizens to family debacles. Most importantly though, it showed me the importance of teamwork. Never before had I known the true scope of just how much working together can improve results. Next semester, I am hoping to truly immerse myself in community projects. The research I have done on volunteer organizations has been eye-opening and volunteering is necessary for us to continue being a progressive nation.

I would like to express some appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a challenge. As a result of looking out through the internet and obtaining techniques that were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was more than. Being alive without the approaches to the difficulties you’ve sorted out by way of this posting is actually a serious case, as properly as the kind that would have badly damaged my career if I had not encountered your site. Your know-how and kindness in taking care of a lot of items was outstanding. I am not confident what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I’m able to at this time appear ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this skilled and effective support. I will not hesitate to endorse your web sites to any individual who really should get care on this dilemma.
