Benefits of Student Volunteering

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.

Scientific Study on IMPACT OF ABACUS LEARNING OF MENTAL ARITHMETIC ON COGNITIVE ABILITIES

The present research found the cognitive abilities that are being enhanced by the Abacus Learning of Highter Arithmetic (ALOHA) among children are incredible. The statistical analyses have demonstrated the effectiveness of abacus training by showing improvement in the following seven abilities: concentration, problem solving, associative memory, working memory, concept formation, creativity and ability to create a mental image and perform operations (spatial ability). As these abilities develop, the children will also improve in their academic performance, increase speed and accuracy and help to create a genius discovering its power within. The findings of this research indicate that undergoing abacus training helps in academic excellence by improving the abilities required to get good grades. As the grades or marks obtained in the examination are generally considered as the level of achievement, the success in a performance gives confidence to the learner and motivates for higher achievement.

Another aspect of brain functioning that has implications for cognitive development is lateralization. Children use both their hands in handling the abacus and also to do visualization, during which, children learn to visualize the digits in the form of beads as in the abacus and do all the manipulations using visual imagery. In fact, the finding of the current research paved the way to label the ALOHA Programme as “The course of Cognitive development”.
