Volunteer with Us

East Rugby Union is much more than a Club. It is a responsible citizen and an active participant in society. One of the factors that have ensured the club remains relevant over the years is that it gives itself to the community. The club does this in many ways, facilitating the development of the game in the community. However, one other key area in which the club does is in charitable pursuits. The club is always involved in multiple projects and undertakings aimed at making society a better place.

To achieve this, we work with a lot of volunteers. These volunteers come from different strata of society, be it gender, occupation, and even background. Because our charitable projects are ever-growing, we are always in need of more volunteers.

There are several benefits to becoming a volunteer with Easts. We mention just a few:

Achieving Your Beliefs

There is nothing as amazing as being an active part of what you believe in. Helping to achieve those beliefs that you subscribed to is a way to validate those beliefs. Being a person who believes in selflessness and doing things for the greater good, actively helping to achieve that is a way to give life to that belief.

One thing that this does to you is that it assures you that your beliefs are realistic. Thus, that strong belief of dedicating oneself to the greater good is real and can be achieved. Furthermore, it shows that you are not alone with those beliefs. Numerous others share the same beliefs as you. Even more important is the fact that volunteering with us brings you in direct contact with those people.

In essence, you are going to be in a community of like-minded persons. Being amongst these persons strengthens your resolve, supercharges your interest, and encourages you even further.

It also opens you to even more varying and diverse perspectives, enabling you to become even more informed and knowledgeable. Some of the relationships formed here might be useful in the personal, career, professional and other spheres, even in the longer term. 

Helping Others

This is one of those things you hold dear, and this provides ample opportunity for you to act it out. Being selfless in helping others is one of the noblest things we can engage in as humans.

In one way or the other, we are privileged. This privilege can manifest in various forms, from our physical ableness and agility to our mental and cognitive vibrancy. It also includes our relative economic well-being and social wellness. It even happens that most of us have a combination of all of the above.

However, due to so many factors, there are members of society who are not so privileged. In several cases, there is nothing we can do to change the status quo. Nevertheless, we can make their lives much better through our selflessness. Thus, it is pertinent for us to use our privilege for the betterment of others.

When we do this, we are invariably making our world a much better place, both for ourselves and others. 

Becoming Better Individuals

It is a fact that helping others helps us become even better versions of ourselves. Several studies have established that by developing empathy, many people have better their personalities, careers, and other aspects of their lives.
