Rachael Chong: All Volunteers Are Not Created Equal

Rachael Chong: All Volunteers Are Not Created Equal

The article speaks on volunteering, while for some it may be fulfiling to undertake certain roles and if they do out of personal choice. However, if an organisation does not use the knowledge and skills of its volunteers in an optimal way it is a waste of human resources. The question being do the organisations you volunteer for really effectively make use of you unique knowledge and skils? Does this mean when we do volunteer we only work in roles that we are qualified to do, obviously not. If you do volunteer, you may want to consider what you do and if you could better serve the organisation, its clients and the wider community more effectively..

However, if you don’t volunteer, how do you give back to yuor community.

You’ve found us out, Pete: We want gay kids to be treated like humans

Good As You:: Gay and Lesbian Activism With a Sense of Humor

I am heartened by the work of people like Kevin Jennings (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network founder and executive director) and currently Obama education appointee. This entry focuses on comments made by Mr Jennings at GLSEN’s Mid-Atlantic conference, held October 25, 1997. It speaks to a wide held view among our detractors that we actively recruit people to become gay, otherwise known as the gay agenda. The spectre of McCarthyism figures highly in my thoughts on this view, it is 2009 our kids deserve better than to suffer under the hysteria of 1950’s bigotry. GLSEN gives them that chance to be who they are and find respect and acceptance in the communities they live.
