Let's hear from Johanna:
How long you've been involved with L.A. Works? I have been involved with LA works since March of 2006. Prior to that, I was involved at Hands on
Why do you volunteer? I think it is important to give time and yourself to others. I enjoy learning from other volunteers, the groups the activities benefit and about the organizations LA works benefits. I just hope my service has helped at least one person to try something new, think about something in a different way or inspired someone to volunteer.
What is your "philosophy" of volunteering? Volunteerism is very important to our society. It gives us the opportunity to work and learn from people that may not otherwise be involved in your life.
Any tips you'd like to share with your fellow project leaders? Wow I would like more myself! Some days are better than others—always try to stay positive and remember why you enjoy the projects you have selected.
