    Thank you, Katie, for adding your thoughts! Learning how to use your time effectively and determining your priorities is another benefit of the leadership skills students can develop by being involved in community service. You are also a great example of how doing community service while a student becomes a life long committment, as you have continued your involvement.

    I agree that one of the crutches students use is that there’s not enough time but there’s always time for community service.  I know this because I’m the student from Georgia Tech that Dave mentioned and trust me time was always at a premium but it’s about prioritizing.  Once you make time for important things the rest will just fall into place.  Countless times I’d stop studying or working on a project in college to go volunteer and it was always the nice break and energy booster I needed so I could return and finish the assignment.
