Service offers many benefits to everyone. It improves the quality of life, and helps individuals to think about others for a change. Just how valuable is your service though? According to independentsector.org, Utah’s estimated value of volunteer hours is twenty-three dollars and fifty-one cents. High Schoolers need about 100+ hours to get into college. That means that a high school student offers about two thousand dollars of worth to the community. Multiply that number by the amount of students at Mountain View, and it comes to over 3 million dollars. Mountain View has such potential to make a difference this year. London Sorenson (Sen.) Said “The world would be a happier place if people would serve someone else instead of themselves.” Somewhere to find service oprotunities is at www.unitedwayuc.org/volunteer/volunteer-opportunities-lists.
