Take a close look around. Much of what we take for granted in our everyday life is shaped, guided, if not outright provided, by volunteers. Whether it is the organization of activities for our youth, assisting teachers, driving the grass root layer of politics, pushing social change, supporting the less fortunate, bringing us our music festivals and other cultural events, preserving our history, we all rely on volunteers in some way. Volunteerism can take on many roles, from leading the charge in a very public manner to quietly helping someone out once and a while.
