Spring is almost here! Why not turn over a new leaf? Volunteer your time with Music in Schools Today and help bring music to schools in the Bay Area! April is National Volunteer Month, and there is no better time to begin volunteering to expand our music education programs.
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health.
Helping others kindles happiness, as many studies have demonstrated. When researchers at the London School of Economics examined the relationship between volunteering and measures of happiness in a large group of American adults, they found the more people volunteered, the happier they were. Compared with people who never volunteered, the odds of being “very happy” rose 7% among those who volunteer monthly and 12% for people who volunteer every two to four weeks. (Source)
