You could also give “Big Brothers, Big Sisters” a chance and be able to change a child’s life. With this organization you will be paired up with a child between the ages of 6-18 and be seen as a role model for them.

Volunteering can change your outlook and make you grateful for the things you have in your life. You might even be able to change someone else’s life for the better.
