Mahatma Ghandi was once quoted as saying ’The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others’, and we at Council couldn’t agree more! This month’s idea for our awesome, Older Girls is to take time to get involved in your community and volunteer to help those in need. Many organizations offer youth volunteer programs, so we recommend that you pick a cause that you’re truly passionate about and research what opportunities are available in your area! Organizations like The United Way, The St. Louis Zoo, or even the St. Louis County Library post calendars with volunteer opportunities on their websites and have staff members readily available to answer any and all questions one might have about how to get involved. So go ahead, check out an organization near you, and get involved!
