Yep. The Youth Centre I work at. It's impossible to be glum in that place when you're looning around with kids!
I volunteer as a Youth Worker, so we play games, talk about their problems, give them a place where they can feel happy and safe.
Both. I work at two centres. One that is mainly all kids and the other is for at-risk kids. It's quite the contrast!
We actually have a lot of provisions for kids at the moment, including detached workers that go out and speak to the kids hanging out, which they seem to really appreciate.
I'm a board member of a major secular charitable organisation. I'm an atheist so wouldn't want to go to a church but I do believe in building strong community spirit, just without the fairytales.
We have put $40k towards the building of a BBQ and picnic area in a local park. This financial year (here in Australia financial year is from Jul-Jun) we've disbursed over $40k in donations. We organise a family festival and Jazz festival in our town as well. Plus plenty of little things helping people in need around town. I really enjoy it even though I'm just about the youngest member. Only 42!
It's great. I live in a relatively small town so community is very important.
I don't need church or to go anywhere , just need to be with my children at home playing with them if we go out we go out if not then fine.
I don't need to go some place to feel good about myself,
I've only been depressed once in my life, and I can't stay sad for more than 2-3 hours..after 2-3 hours, I simply refuse to be sad..weird, I know, but I say to myself, screw this, I'm not gonna be sad. And it works! Master of my domain.
Working with kids fulfills that for me.
I like sport too. It gives me a natural lift.
This is a good question :)
I feel good inside without the need to go to church. Churches are full of hypocrites anyway who think that by going to church on a Sunday they can be arseholes the rest of the week and it will all be OK
