Benefits Of Volunteering For Students

Getting involved in volunteering activities form a young age can reap in huge benefits on the overall development. Volunteering inculcates a sense of purpose and commitment in their life. There are various reasons why students should volunteer while they still go to school.

Invaluable Experience

Volunteering helps you gain invaluable work experience other than just finishing off your assignments and getting good grades. This gets you ahead of the pack by a long margin. There are a lot of volunteering opportunities for students which helps in developing social, technical and soft skills that is required in the job market today.

Enhanced Resume

How often have you noticed the need of work experience even with entry-level job postings? Employers prefer work experience from a candidate before hiring them. What if you don’t have that work experience? You must start somewhere! Volunteer experience comes to the rescue. Having a volunteering experience before you graduate school can work wonders for your profile and can add a great deal of substance to your resume.

Networking Opportunities

With the competition so fierce, it is a given that only skill and knowledge does not get you through. Networking and people skills play a very important role towards your path to success. It is a connected world. Do you know most jobs are filled within the inside network or recommendations? Volunteering helps you make those worthy connections at a professional level and you also make some great friends along the way.

Social Skills

More often, the most valuable lessons are taught outside the classroom. You learn these lessons through life experiences. Volunteering lets you gain these invaluable life experiences at various stages. Helping the community, rooting for a cause, opening to new opportunities, getting into unexplored ventures are some of the experience which you come across while you volunteer. A hands-on experience surely helps you to develop your social skills at a higher level.

Community Involvement

What social causes do you feel strongly about? What can you do to help? These are some of the basic questions you want to ask yourself before deciding where you want to volunteer at. Is it the environment, education, sports, NGO work, or events? Make your pick wisely because you will only enjoy volunteer work if you truly believe in what you are doing.

Motivation is the key to learning new skills! Aloha Mind Math, Canada.

Motivation – Key To Learning New Skills!

One who finds a way to keep them motivated is more likely to achieve greater success in life. Learning and motivation go hand in hand.

The society we live in has set its certain boundaries and routines which one is expected to follow; going to school, passing your grades, following the timetable etc. are few of those routines which you are accustomed to. However, the challenge arises when you are pushed out of your comfort zone while learning a new skill. But if you keep yourself motivated enough, you can surely sail through with the wind on your side.

So, how to keep you motivated to learn a new skill and keep yourself going?

Find A Mentor

Follow the greats in the field. Study how they work and try to grasp all you can from them. It is always a good idea to find a mentor who you can trust and who can guide you with whatever problems you might be facing. It can be your school teacher, someone from your family, your friend or someone who you know. It is important that they have their best interest in you and your success. When you are down, they will help motivate you. Choose wisely!

Practice Practically

See how you can implement what you have learnt in your practical life. For example, the skills acquired at Aloha Mind Math will definitely help you calculate faster in your mind without the help of any calculator, but what is the point of learning the skill if you can’t help your mom cross check her grocery bill? Or if you can’t help your dad when he is setting his accounts? Life is full of situations where you can make use of what you have learnt. To keep yourself motivated, you need to trace them and implement what you have learnt.

Teach What You Have Learnt

To keep the interest alive while you continue to learn the new skill set, you can try teaching what you have learnt to someone else. This will give you an entirely new perspective towards it. You will find out the nuances and all the complex theories will suddenly make sense to you. And guess what, you will have a whole lot of questions to ask your mentor the next day! Say, you are learning a new language; reading the book will be boring to you, but if you try to talk to someone in that language, things will get interesting for sure. Sounds fun right? Try for yourself.

Test Yourself

Testing yourself before anyone else tests you out is crucial. This will help you realize where you stand and you can then adjust your approach towards it. Find out your strengths to build it further and your weaknesses in order to work towards it. Self-evaluation will help you keep motivated and allow yourself to master the skill that you have taken up.

We are sure that if you have read this far, you are motivated enough to go get the ball rolling!

Learn Time Management Skills at Aloha Mind Math Canada.

Importance of Time Management for Students

Gone are the days when time used to be a liberal commodity. When you could sit for hours under the stars or you could play ball with your friends till eternity and still managed to get your homework done. Time Management is an essential life skill which plays a very important role not only in a student’s life but also in general, for everyone.

We still get 24 hours a day, so what is it that it makes us feel like there is never enough time?

Competitiveness.

In today’s age, competition is fierce. And young kids and students face the music like never before. It is not enough to ace your exams, it is equally important to participate in extracurricular activities such as playing a sport, painting, swimming and so on. The stakes are high if you want to climb the social ladder.

For students, it is imperative that you manage your time well enough to accommodate all that you want to achieve within the stipulated time without damaging your physical or mental endurance. It is also important to get into the habit of time management from a young age because hey, if you think that you are busy now, mind you, you will be even busier later in life.

It’s about time that you start managing your time! Here are some tips:

Plan

Planning is key. Everybody in this world gets the same amount of time. It is up to you to decide what you want to do with it. Making a list of things to do is a very good start. Keep a calendar handy, jot down your schedule, classes, assignments and project due dates. You can then prioritize based on their importance, ease and relevance.

Set Goals

Always work with a goal in mind. Set your short-term goals and long-term goals. The timeline should always be clear on when you want to be able to achieve these goals. Analyze your rout towards your goal periodically and make modifications if required. You will always come up with hindrances, but make sure you don’t lose focus.

Do not Procrastinate

Procrastination can be a major obstacle towards achieving your goals in time. Try not to get into the habit of postponing things which can easily be done at that time. One of the ways to avoid procrastination is to break the big task into smaller tasks which will be easier to get done with. Keeping organized and setting up meaningful goals also help.

Avoid Distractions

Avoid that unnecessary phone call, the one more round of video game, the binge eating, that TV series and everything that can be a distraction. These distractions do not seem much of a big deal but in the long run, it highly affects your ability to manage your time.

Balance

Maintaining a balance between your academic tasks (homework, assignment, projects); social tasks (friends, family fun) and general tasks (food, sleep health) is very important. Once you have a balance with these, you will certainly be successful in life!
