Have you ever felt the need to make a difference or leave a mark in this world? Have you always wanted to give back and pay it forward, but don't know how? You don't have to be the next JK Rowling or Emma Watson to do great things. You just have to be yourself and have an open heart to help others. Here are some reasons to further convince you to join an outreach program or charity.

  1. You learn to be kind.

Joining an outreach program or charities will redefine your idea of kindness once you get to interact with the people you're helping and they show you what it truly means to be kind. 

  1. You become more responsible.

Joining an outreach program means you're accepting the responsibility of taking care of other people. This isn't limited to giving out care packages or food, but also being there for them and listening to what they have to say.

  1. You become more understanding.

Being a part of an outreach program isn't just about talking and educating the people you're helping or providing them with their needs. You will learn that it's also, more importantly, about listening to what they have to say, empathizing with their situation, and working together to find a solution that works best for them.

  1. You make a difference.

Your work doesn't have to be published in newspapers to be remembered. When you help other people, you leave a mark in their lives no matter how big or small your act of kindness is.

  1. You learn from them.

You may be the teacher imparting knowledge and wisdom to those you're helping, but there's always something to be learned from them, too--whether it be about kindness, love, relationships, or determination. 

Life isn't always about being successful at something, but becoming happy in the work you do for those who need it. The smallest things you do could make a big difference in other people's lives, so join your school's outreach programs or your city's charities because it'll be one unforgettable experience.
