Volunteer Spotlight: Javi Boskett

Where do you volunteer?

I volunteer at the Fort Irwin Army Community Services (ACS) building at the corner of 3rd and G streets with Tony Untalan.

 

What do you do as a volunteer?

I spend most of my time with clerical and administrative work such as organizing and filing papers and documents, and working telephones. Essentially, general office duties.

 

What do you get out of volunteering?

Satisfaction in knowing that I am doing my part to serve the community that deserves it the most. Having the opportunity to give back to our men and women in uniform, as well as their families, is a wonderful privilege.

 

How did you get started as a volunteer?

Back home in Seattle, I began volunteering many years ago at an adult family care home. The residents and I would do a variety of fun activities, such as reading, coloring, and doing puzzles. Also, I was the president of my previous high school’s Volunteer Club.

 

What advice would you give someone about volunteering?

It is never too late to start! No matter where, when, or how you volunteer, you will always be improving your community and staying active and involved. Volunteering is fun, and the friends you will have made, (along with the work experience you will have gained), will be simply invaluable!
