I volunteer at the Fort Irwin Middle School Teen center.
What do you do as a volunteer?Â
I help with projects.
What do you get out of volunteering?Â
Helping our children grow and learn is a long time desire of mine. Knowing that I could be the difference in one childâ€™s life is the ultimate personal satisfaction.
How did you get started as a volunteer?Â
I first volunteered as a youth sports coach about 10 years ago and enjoyed every minute of it. With my wife working here at the MST and there being some technical projects I could help with, I started to dedicate my personal time to the MST staff and children.Â It is almost addicting.
What advice would you give someone about volunteering?
Try it a few times and you will find that helping others when they need it is rewarding in itself. Our children will lead our country in some aspect in the future; letâ€™s make them good leaders.
