I was reading an article about the economy recently and it stated that, nationwide, community volunteerism is reaching a new level.

When you think about it, this does make sense. Unemployment has soared to an all-time high—7.6%, or 11.6 million people—according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many of these professionals want to keep busy, and feel that they are doing some good with their unexpected downtime.

Community volunteerism increased as much as 16% in January. Laid-off workers are finding that by volunteering within their community, they can network with other business professionals, and it also allows them to network within many different facets of business, potentially opening doors to future job opportunities. In a recent article in The New York Times, reporter Kelley Holland notes that, “More than two million people lost jobs in 2008, and many talented and experienced managers have time on their hands.”
