Serving the school with your gifts and talents is, indeed, a great gift. Did you know that a volunteer hour in the state of Wyoming (according to the Corporation for National & Community Service) is worth about $20? For example, when our school families serve the school to fulfill their covenant volunteer hours (I like to think of them as “angel hours”), those roughly 1,500 hours add up to $30,000 saved for the school–and family tuition! Indeed, it’s worth a lot more spiritually. That’s definitely worth it, and the benefits not just for school families, either.
Other important benefits of volunteering:
- Making a difference in a child’s life
- Increased health and longer life
- Increased connection to your parish and school community
- Increase your networking contacts
- A great experience to add to your resumé
- Learn or develop skills you already have
