Volunteering with The First Tee of Silicon Valley Has Benefits

Categories: 2019, July, Newsletter

It can be hard to find time to volunteer, especially with how busy life can be. The benefits to you, your family, and your community are enormous. The more you volunteer, the more you’ll receive in return.

Volunteering at TFTSV provides an amazing opportunity to meet many interesting people, whether it be participants, parents, or coaches. You interact with people who share your interests, which strengthens your ties to the community.

Volunteering is also good for your mind and body. First, it helps counteract the effects of stress, anger, and anxiety. By connecting with members of our organization, you take your mind off your own worries and develop a reliable support system. Volunteering also makes you happy – being helpful towards others delivers pleasure because we are naturally hard-wired to give to others. By doing good for the participants, more specifically building character, instilling life-enhancing values, and promoting healthy choices, you feel a sense of accomplishment. This builds self-confidence and gives you a sense of identity. The better you feel about yourself, the more positive you will view your life and future goals. Volunteering at the TFTSV also entails constant walking and movement, which results in a smaller likelihood of developing high blood pressure and lessens symptoms of chronic pain.

All in all, volunteering, especially at our organization, is an exciting, fulfilling way to explore your passions. It gives you a healthy opportunity to escape from your daily routine and provides you with renewed creativity and motivation that can carry over to other areas of your life.
