In this podcast Máire Cassidy explores the importance of volunteering in your daughter’s life. Volunteering is at the heart of who we are, it’s walking the talk. It is the action of helping or doing something for someone besides ourselves. There are 4 basic forms of volunteering.
Volunteering has an important impact on your daughter’s personal development; it is in real-time (not virtual), it helps regain perspective, it facilitates responsibility, connection, growth in self-esteem and confidence and reduces anxiety levels. Máire also taps into opportunities for volunteering in the school and the community where parents can support and accompany the girls in their volunteering. She finished with a brief reflection on the connection between leadership and volunteering.
