hroughout this guide, an emphasis has been placed on the tools that empower the volunteers of our communities to be truly of service to their communities. Armed with the tools described in each chapter, they are able to make a difference rapidly, effectively and permanently.
It is one thing to mentor a young person or to be a good role model. It is quite another to apply skills that visibly improve literacy, mend relationships that appear to be irrevocably torn, bring order and relief to locales struck with disaster, or help in a myriad of other ways to enhance an individuals chances of survival in the present and into the future.
It is this ability to create substantive and meaningful change that those volunteers skilled in L. Ron Hubbards social betterment and improvement methods bring to the arena of volunteerism. And for every contribution they make, they take with them a sense of personal accomplishment and pride.
We recognize that while individuals form the backbone of community service, individuals with similar goals working together can be far more effective. The well-organized endeavor of 10 volunteers can get done the work of twice as many or more individual efforts.
It is this additional factor of organization that has enabled the volunteers working in the variety of programs described in this guide to get the job done.
Although Mr. Hubbard provided the means to help people on an individual basis, he also developed highly workable methods a technology for organization and administration, and even for increasing individual work performance. Originally applied as a means for orderly but rapid and remarkable growth for organizations and groups, Mr. Hubbards administrative technology has become vast in its application to virtually any effort.
