Welcome to the official site of the Empowered Volunteer Rebuilds America!
The purpose of this site is to empower any passionate person who wants to learn how to build or in some cases rebuild memberships to various charitable groups or the groups who support the charities!
It would also help if this person has aspirations of deriving health benefits from his or her actions as well. In other words, by presenting your passion in a positive direction you will get more back in benefits than you put into the effort of helping the charity, according to many studies!
How about that for a change, you can get back more benefits for yourself than the cost of the effort you put into the organization.
To do this the empowered volunteer must be passionate about a specific charity first off. Finding the group who supports that charity or becoming passionate about the group supporting the charity will, studies have shown produce many health benefits for the passionate volunteer. This site will review the many studies and show how the various healthy benefits for the individual who volunteers are produced.
To sum it up, a passionate volunteer can positively impact their own health and happiness with very little money involved and minimal time allocations!
Now just joining a group, putting the membership card in your purse or wallet will NOT produce the health benefits I have been alluding to. You have to do a bit more than that. If you follow the Empowered Volunteer strategy you stand a great chance of maximizing your potential, again according to various studies. There is also the satisfaction of helping to make a worthy charity become better funded by building new members.
What a deal! Just for doing something you want to do anyway, you can increase the likely hood of living longer and in better health while helping your country rebuild its various volunteer infrastructure programs that have seen sharply dropping memberships over the last few decades. Fewer members mean less revenue for the charities they support in the end, so this empowerment can really make a difference in a huge way.
For instance, various civic, fraternal, or veterans groups conduct numerous events throughout their calender year to raise money for the charity they support. Other groups include religious, trade associations, and even children’s groups.
An example of a fraternal group who specializes in helping a charity is the Shriners, properly known as Royal Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, and their cause is Crippled and Burned Children’s Hospitals better known as Shriner’s Hospitals. Shriners are associated with Freemasonry.
Another fraternal group is the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and they are a Roman Catholic fraternity. They have become known for their support of the Ten Commandment monuments around court houses.
There are many others such as the Fraternal Order of Elks, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pyhthias, Pilot International, Knights of Columbus, and Royal Neighbors of America, to list but a few. All of them need new members.
Fraternal groups differ from civic groups in a few ways, but one of the main ways is in how they control their membership. Fraternal groups are specific and closed, often requiring a vote by the existing membership via the famous “black ball” in order to gain membership. Note, in most instances the black ball is really shaped like a cube!
Civic groups on the other hand are not closed and are for the most part open to all members. Examples of well known civic groups include Lions Club International, United Methodist Women, Soroptimist International, Rotary International, United Way, Optimist International,and many others.
Examples of veterans groups would include American Legion, Veterans Of Foreign Wars of the United States, Catholic War Veterans, National Association of Black Veterans, Navy Mutual Aid Association, and the Fleet Reserve Association. There are many more veterans groups too.
The aim of this site is to educate an individual on how to help a group who they are passionate about so that a charity will end up benefiting from more individuals joining and hopefully helping their cause. As an empowered volunteer does this they also accumulate real time individual health benefits which are both measurable and detectable in studies. Social benefits are also incurred according to many studies.
This is truly one of life’s win-win situations! One person, with the proper leverage as an empowered volunteer can make a huge impact on a group who in turn supports a charity, thus really magnifying their presence far beyond just joining and being one cog in a large wheel. That is the real impact one person, an empowered volunteer can and should have. Want to be an empowered volunteer?
With the proper mindset and a bit of training most people will find they can be an empowered volunteer.
