How is Somebody Service Minded?
"Love cannot remain by itself — it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action and that action is service."
In the grand scheme of a community and society, acts of service give reality to the thought-processes in social justice and global competence. A leader who is service-minded will find meaning in their work through their service to others. Similarly they will work as a model to others by engaging in service in and outside of their community.
The resources in this guide are intended to offer you a variety of ways to contribute to society. Volunteering will not only provide shape to your own leadership abilities but also give shape to the community you are a part of.
