New Age Volunteerism

Written by Mark Ray Espinoza* and Cyril Planilla**

The word volunteerism can be defined in a lot of ways and, sure enough, each and every one of us has our very own picture of what volunteerism is. Commonly, we interpret it as selfless service and a giving time and effort for a worthy cause. Although not everyone is in active practice of being a volunteer, the spirit of volunteerism has been adamantly aflame in our society now more than ever. As we side-step the snares of apathy and climb the steps that least to the realization of our endeavors, we find ourselves fueled by the passion for service. This principle is the lifeblood, down to the very core, of the VYLH.
