"Why do people volunteer? When asked this question, I think most people would answer with something along the lines of, “Because it feels good to help others.” But where does this “good” feeling come from? Is it because it truly feels good to know you are helping make someone’s life better or meeting a need in an underserved community? Or, is it because volunteering allows us to absolve ourselves of some of the guilt we feel for being more privileged than others?"

"When I look back at myself as a brand new AmeriCorps member during PSO, I am struck by how formative this year has been for me. I knew that time in National Health Corps was likely to be impactful, but I never expected to learn and evolve as much as I have. Rather than this happening through distinct, dramatic moments, I think that I have learned the most through my small, day-to-day tasks and interactions at my host site."
