It's the start of a new club year! Now is the perfect time to invite your friends and acquaintances to check out San Antonio Junior Forum. Consider all the reasons you are part of SAJF and share that passion with others! San Antonio Junior Forum is unlike any other Women's organization in that we don't support just one single cause, we reach out in many ways to make an impact in our community!

Our mission is to create awareness and offer educational, civic and philanthropic opportunities to our membership so we reach out to our community in three very distinctive ways.

  1. We provide interesting and diverse opportunities to volunteer in our community working with those with disabilities, the elderly, women and children in need, the military, even participating in promoting the arts. We are constantly expanding our volunteer projects to include those causes our members are passionate about.
  2. We support our local high school students that are seeking higher education through yearly scholarships. We realize that paying for college is one of the biggest deterents for our young people and we strive to help them reach their goals.
  3. We partner with other like minded non-profits, offering grants to help them achieve their goals in supporting our community. We especially consider those organizations that have a commitment to women and their families.

Join us at one of our monthly meetings to learn more! 

 

Volunteering and its Surprising Benefits

How Giving to Others Makes You Healthier and Happier

Woman in volunteer group

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right match can help you to reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. Learn more about the many benefits of helping others and find tips on getting started.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help others those in need and improve your health and happiness.

Benefits of volunteering: 4 ways to feel healthier and happier

  1. Volunteering connects you to others
  2. Volunteering is good for your mind and body
  3. Volunteering can advance your career
  4. Volunteering brings fun and fulfillment to your life
