I started volunteering on the 1st of August of the previous year. I and my friend were playing computer game and suddenly he said: «I want to do something useful for society.» The next day he came ta RVC, registered and asked me to join him, saying that it’s better than spending summer next to computer.
My first volunteer experience was at action where I was delivering basic household chemicals to older people. And then I continued my volunteer activity! I’ve begun taking part in a project connected with my college’s specialty (I study at College of Building)
It was «School of Repair» project, where I have spent the most time. Besides this one I’ve participated in almost every project except for the ones connected with kids.
The greatest impression was «Volunteer of the Year» Awards Ceremony 2018: staying on the stage I was proud of myself, I’ve had 137 hours of volunteering during 5 months (August-December).
A lot of people are afraid of coming to the Volunteer Center because: 1) it’s difficult 2) I don’t have enough time 3) «I don’t want, what will I do there?». Sincerely, I am not going to persuade people, because this desire should be from the heart. If you want to socialize, help people and be useful for society, come to RVC, I’m sure you are going to like it and won’t regret!
