The number of community volunteers is dropping, coincidentally at the same time we are being prompted to learn to say no and set boundaries. While boundaries are important, volunteers are also critical to successful schools and communities. But that does not mean that you have to say yes to everything and overextend yourself. Make a list in order of importance of activities that you feel are important to you and your community. Make a list of your strengths as a volunteer. What are you good at? What brings you joy? What is easy for you to do? Can you reach out and secure those one or two positions now?
