Do you want to change your life? Do you want to change the lives of others? Community service and volunteerism offers you a way to do both. Through consistent volunteering, you can build your resume, establish a local network, learn new skills, expand existing skills and help make the community around you a better place. Most agencies don't require a huge commitment of time; they just want to know when you are coming, how long you intend to stick around and what you want to get out of your time with them. Beyond that, your time volunteering is what you make of it. To learn more visit http://www.csun.edu/getinvolved/community/.
