I’m a pre-med student who just moved to St. Pete in January! I was looking for ways to become involved in the local community supporting causes that are dear to me, and it didn’t take me very long to find CASA! I look forward to the insight volunteering here will provide me as I move forward with my public stewardship.
The core mission and goals of CASA are meaningful to me, both in a personal sense and because of my ideology; I believe that the greatest part of life is helping others, and building a sense of togetherness in the world. When it comes to what I love most about volunteering, I don’t have to think hard; the best part is the people! You really find the kindest souls helping at places like CASA.
There’s still so many more experiences at CASA to have! But if I had to pick a really great thing so far, it’s that I have made some awesome new friends here. It can be a little daunting making friends in a new city, but I definitely feel like I’ve been welcomed with open arms. And then there’s always being productive and experiencing the gratification of quality work as the icing on top of the cake, of course!
