National Womenbuild Week 2014
There is a great movement to promote volunteerism across the US. The reason is rankings of states have been based on the people's effort to help by volunteering. Volunteering to keep busy, or to be altruistic, or to make friends or for professional networking or to find a job. Many factors are influencing me to work on the Habitat for Humanity Womenbuild Program in Schenectady New York. The one that stands out is the fact that I still remain unemployed after years of study at the university and years of networking in the hidden job market. This week marks the 3rd week of volunteering to help support the vision of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. This Saturday we raise the walls on the 7th Womenbuild house and it commemorates national womenbuild week. This volunteer to professional network has a great cause. Today I met 4 women that decided to help paint the concrete and wood structure with indoor and outdoor paint.
