Volunteer code of P.E.A.C.E. —
Performance . Equanimity . Awareness . Consideration . Enjoyment
A commitment to volunteering is a gift to others in the form of time and an expression of compassion. The reciprocal reward is the opportunity to serve others without expectation of compensation in any form and the merit of which speaks for itself.
As a volunteer, we are choosing to engage in service work and, as such, we voluntarily choose to subject ourselves to potential challenges that may thrust us out of our comfort zone, cause a shift in our existing perspective, and as a result may promote an expansion of our awareness. Otherwise, we may choose to allocate our time to other endeavors.
Volunteerism is community. We work together as one to achieve a common purpose. We provide mutual support in accomplishing our goals. Our micro-interactions (in speech, behavior, and thoughts) are consistent with our macro-objectives and both are aligned with the vision to engender a thriving existence for all, with all that it entails. We act with purpose, re-act with intent, and constantly reflect on our actions to ensure its consistency.
To volunteer is to surrender oneself, the ego, and to work for the benefit of others.
