I started to volunteer for the Sri Lanka Student Association in January. Around mid-April we had a celebration for the Sri Lankan New Year. We had a whole bunch of games and we got the members of the Sri Lankan community to come and enjoy themselves.
I helped prepare for the event by booking the rooms, doing social media, buying prizes for the games and getting the cultural food ready. For those of you who have not volunteered, just go out there and ask what volunteer opportunities you can do. Just by volunteering an hour or two a week, someone is going to be impressed by what you’re doing and that’s going to get you somewhere.
