Would you recommend HEART IN MOTION?

I joined Heart in Motion as a freshmen in high school and it has been one of the best choices I've made for myself. Seeing the volunteers exude such enthusiasm while volunteering shows that the volunteers are volunteering from their heart. Heart in Motion's mission is to lead the way for youth to be engaged in the community and their passion shine through in how much they care for their volunteers. Everyone is accepted for who they are; there are no other requirements for joining other than to volunteer from your heart. Heart in Motion pushes me to step out of my comfort zone and try things that I would have never thought of trying. I would recommend Heart in Motion to anyone whose goal of volunteering is simply to help others out!

Heart in Motion is an amazing organization that I 100% recommend to anyone interested in volunteering. It’s organized and filled with dedicated people who are willing to show up as early as 5 AM to help. The members are outgoing and always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Being a reserved person myself, interacting with people has always been hard, but HIM’s affable aura makes it a lot easier. They’re always enthusiastic, seeking ways to help others, smiling, and creating a warm atmosphere. Joining HIM has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve built everlasting friendships with people who have given me unforgettable experiences and memories. HIM gives fun and enjoyable opportunities to help the community with friends from around the Bay Area. HIM isn’t just any other volunteer group; it provides opportunities, is welcoming, professional, and cordial. Through HIM, I’ve been able to make numerous friends, learn about unfamiliar events, and help the community.

Heart in Motion is a one of a kind organization and has definitely opened many doors of opportunity for me. I joined Heart in Motion during my freshman year of high school and immediately fell in love with the organization’s warm individuals and welcoming environment. I found volunteering with HIM to be simple and easy. Volunteering with Heart in Motion has provided me with courage to step out of my comfort zone, and interact with different individuals, some of which have since become my close friends. Through my work with HIM, I have long realized that volunteering can be so much more than just a requirement for college applications . By working with other enthusiastic individuals at numerous volunteering events, I have found that giving back to my community can be exciting, fun, and incredibly rewarding. The positive and nurturing environment that Heart in Motion provides its members has allowed me to develop a passion for volunteering and really be able to serve from my heart.

Coming from a small middle school, there was very few people that I knew going into high school. Determined to meet new people and find a place for myself, I tried joining other volunteer groups but none really stood out to me until came Heart in Motion. Though I joined in my sophomore year, I quickly found myself a home with Heart in Motion’s warm and welcoming members. Heart in Motion provides the best service to its members and the events that they support. They always makes sure that its members know where to go, when to go, and exactly what to do to ensure that the event staff and participants are satisfied with the volunteers’ performance. Meanwhile, they see to it that its members are well fed, hydrated and having a good time. If there was one thing I could change in my decision to join Heart in Motion, I would have wished that I had joined earlier. It is great to be a part of an organization that cares so deeply for its members, truly inspiring service from the heart.

I would most definitely recommend joining Heart In Motion. They are the most organized volunteer organization you can find, and provide a huge range of events to choose from, due to their outstanding reputation among event organizers. I started volunteering as an HIMer in my freshman year in high school, and it's been an amazing experience. I've met so many amazing people, and have learned things about my community that I never would've known of before. Everyone is always filled with charisma, and it's amazing how helping other people can lift your own spirits. Seeing the smiles on the event-goers' faces make all of the hard work worth it, and have made me discover the joys of volunteering. Heart In Motion has become a huge part of my life, and I'll definitely continue to volunteer with them for years to come.
