The youth are the future of a nation. Sometimes they get development support from teachers, parents and sometimes they don’t. The adults they transform into should be responsible contributors to their community.
I believe in the strong impact that volunteering can have as a means of “giving back” or “paying it forward”, in developing a community, society, country, in shaping the youth of a nation. “Giving back” is a journey that someone has to start and if everyone “pays it forward” in a short time we will be light-years from now.
I have been volunteering in education since 2002, in AIESEC, then Scoala de Valori and recently Teen Refuge, successfully developing people.
