Every first Saturday of the month we have a guest speaker for the mentoring program that I'm a part of. Today, our speaker was a lobbyist who informed the mentees that they should never let volunteer opportunities slip through your hands because you never know where that road will lead you. I thought it was an excellent presentation because so many of us tend to turn our noses up against giving back to the community if it doesn't involve some type of payment.
Incidentally, throughout the years I've met some very good friends through mentoring and volunteering and we keep supporting each other in various ventures. So, two thumbs up for giving back to the community.
