Moments of Professional Rejuvenation from VolunteerSpot’s Summer of Service Blog Series
Summer in the northern hemisphere implies that life slows down and includes periods of rest and rejuvenation. These feelings are carried over from childhood no doubt because, as adults devoted to service, we know that the causes for which our organizations and volunteer programs work don’t end when the temperature heats up. We continue to work hard to feed hungry children, house the homeless, save open space, protect animals, preserve historic monuments, build emergency response systems, and the list goes on.
We may not save time for ourselves to linger in the shade or work in our garden, but, thanks to VolunteerSpot, we can still set aside some time in the summer to sow seeds of professional development. On Tuesdays in the summer, VolunteerSpot posts guest voices with insights on service and volunteering from inspiring leaders in the field. Energize’s own Susan J. Ellis will be guest blogging on trending resources for professional volunteer leadership development in the digital age.
If you're a volunteer leader, or someone who cares about making a difference in your community and world, you won't want to miss VolunteerSpot’s Summer of Service Blog Series 2012!
