Every day, Alpha Kappa Psi volunteers make it possible for members to benefit from personal and professional development opportunities. Without the volunteers’ commitment, AKPsi couldn’t and wouldn’t be a premier developer of principled business leaders.
To show AKPsi’s gratitude, during the month of April (National Volunteer Month) the fraternity will be thanking the many volunteers who gave their time throughout the past year.
Help AKPsi Celebrate Volunteers!
All month long, members are encouraged to help celebrate the impact volunteers make on Alpha Kappa Psi. Throughout the month, an eCard will be available for sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or by email.
Then, during National Volunteer Week (April 23 – 29) individuals will have an opportunity to share the impact AKPsi volunteers have made on social media. Make sure to use #AKPsiVolunteers! And remember, tag @akpsi1904 on Instagram and @akpsi on Twitter.
Other suggestions to show your thanks include: take them out for coffee, send a card in the mail, get a gift-card to their favorite store, or simply give them a call to say thank you.
Meet Some Volunteers
“I am grateful that I made the decision to step out of my comfort zone and become a fraternity volunteer. It has truly molded me into the professional I am today, and now I have no problem stepping up and taking a leadership role in any situation I’m faced!”
“There is an intrinsic reward of watching shy and reserved individuals grow and mature into responsible young adults. It comes down to the ‘feel good’ feeling you get when a part of something worthwhile and the knowledge you have helped ‘make a difference’ for individuals.”
“It’s amazing how you continue learning about yourself while helping others find their way. Volunteering for AKPsi has also given me professional development opportunities. I’ve been able to enhance my skills related to etiquette, personal relationships and technology, which transfer well to my professional career.”
Not an AKPsi Volunteer?
There are many opportunities to get involved! AKPsi can help create opportunities that further a volunteer’s professional or personal development. Sometimes, life doesn’t afford the opportunity to get involved as a volunteer, but there are still many other ways to make a difference.
