30 Days of Demanding the Change: Day 16

Demand the Change by connecting with yourlocal crisis center and consider ways that you can give back.

Today marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week.   This week is set aside for agencies to honor the individuals in their communities that have chosen to give back with a precious donation—their time.

While this is a time that agencies show their appreciation for the past year of individuals that have chosen to give back; you can connect with your local crisis center and learn more about the services they provide.  Maybe you don’t see yourself being the right “fit” to answer a crisis line.  Maybe you have never considered your talents and the positive impact you can have on your community.  But you can connect with your local crisis center and learn more about the services that are provided.  You can learn more about the impact sexual violence is having on your community.  You can learn about how or where support is needed AND you can consider what your role is in giving back.

How often do you think or hear, “There is just not enough time in the day”?  You can choose to have a change of heart by start thinking and encouraging others to consider where there is time to demand the change.
