“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
― Lewis Carroll
New Beginnings offers support to and helps others rise above sexual victimization through the selfless time given by our volunteer advocates.
I began volunteering for New Beginnings in August. When I started my volunteering at New Beginnings it was just part of a requirement for my practicum to complete my masters degree however it has definitely become more than that. My practicum is complete in May but I intend to remain a volunteer. During my time with New Beginnings as a volunteer I have been on call and had to go to the hospital, had a few crisis calls, and dealt black jack at a fundraiser. It is definitely never boring a for such a good cause. To me it is an honor to be able to be at the hospital through someone’s most vulnerable time and if I can help make it even a little easier for them then I feel like I accomplished something.
