How to volunteer with us and types of volunteer opportunities
It’s not by chance that people come to us to volunteer as we know there are many benefits to this process…
More and more studies have shown that volunteers in their 30s, 40’s and 50’s had a more physically and emotionally healthy lifestyle and demonstrated greater enjoyment later in life. The studies even showed that volunteering led to longevity and reduced mortality.
Other studies found that volunteers reported that they felt happier in life and enjoyed a sense of optimism about their futures. In fact, volunteers reported feeling more energized, a sense of purpose that spilled over into other aspects of their personal lives.
Volunteering provides a network of relationships that can connect people to their communities as well as building and strengthening connections between the volunteers themselves.
Research has found that volunteers are able to confront problems in life better and more creatively. This is apparently linked to the fact that these individuals know how to think creatively and out of the box and come across all sorts of different challenges in their volunteering that they might not encounter otherwise.
Our desire to feel fulfilled and confident has long ago been something we all strive for in life. Volunteerism is a path to self-worth and meaning and purpose in life.
Volunteering leads to greater self-worth and more confidence in your abilities. Doing something kind for someone else instills a feeling of pride, satisfaction and higher self-worth.
How to Volunteer With Us?
We receive all types of requests to volunteer with our sandwich preparation. So first of all, thank you! But our first priority is to engage the school staff in the food preparation as part of our mission to establish closer bonds between the teachers and students. But there are still other areas where we can welcome your help.
Nevet’s Eyes- Food Safety Supervision
This is one of our most important volunteer opportunities. Each volunteer will adopt a school that he or she will be responsible for over the course of the year. Once a month, they will come to the school and observe the staff preparing the sandwiches and ensure its done according to our guidelines- using gloves, proper hand-washing, etc. At the conclusion of the visit, a form is submitted.
This role has critical value because the safety of our students is so important. Without these volunteers we can’t uphold that commitment to safe and healthy food
