Volunteerism

Why is Volunteering Important for BSU?
  • Volunteering helps BSU embrace its civic mission and builds strong community connections.
  • College Students are 2x's as likely to volunteer as individuals of the same age who are not enrolled in an institution of higher education.
  • 44.1 percent of all students who volunteer, do so regularly.
  • In 2005 Minnesota ranked 8th in top states for college volunteers with about 40% volunteering.
  • There is a strong correlation between volunteering and likeliness to demonstrate other positive civic attitudes and behaviors. 
  • Students can gain valuable life experiences and skills.
  • Volunteering sends a positive signal to grad schools/employers.
Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Volunteer
  • How much time do I have to commit?
  • Do I want an ongoing regularly-scheduled assignment, a short-term assignment, or a one-time assignment?
  • Am I willing to participate in a training course or do I want to start my volunteer work immediately?
  • Which talents or skills do I offer?
  • What would I most like to learn by volunteering?
  • What don't I want to do as a volunteer?
  • Do I want to work alone or with a group?
  • With what kind of people do I want to work with- both in terms of who is receiving my services and who my co-workers might be?
