Does volunteering change your life? Many first-time volunteers ask themselves that very same question. So what's the answer? It depends. I know, I know. That's kind of a cop out, but it's true.

In our previous blog posts, we've concentrated on how to get community service and volunteering experience to increase the quality of your college application. However, for many of you, there is a more pressing issue: how to complete community service requirements for National Honor Society (NHS).
