Why Should You Join Us?

It is a question that is asked to me a lot. “Why are we all here?” is the another one. In the last few days, I have been asking myself this question. As the executive committee member and general secretary, I am choosing the people who will be part of my next team – and this is a very special occasion when one had no option but had to revisit the organisation’s vision and mission. Maybe it is because this is just one of the one million questions about the trust that my family always ask me and I could never find a satisfactory answer. Or, after all, it is something that I like to think about when I’m in one of those reflexive days.The truth is that some of us, from the trust, feel quite well in this organisation and we can repeat the speech for several times. However, when it is time to explain that why does it make us feel so complete? Why does it feel like home? Why can we find meaning in something that our parents feel a bit odd to understand?I have been working in this trust since a year now, and every day I find out a new reason to be here. To sum up, all the reasons for being in the organisation to write this, I came up with four unique points. Maybe you will feel identified – if you are already a member of executive committee/volunteer of Pareewartann Charitable Trust – or, at least, curious – if you are not.

Find out what makes you feel passionate!

If you have ever been in love, you know the feeling: a heartbeat you can’t control, everything seems beautiful, a lot of energy coming out from your pores. Passion means having a strong sense of connection with someone or something, an endless source of motivation and will. Everything is possible, and you are confident you can overcome any challenges. Nevertheless, what we surely do is to discover what makes us feel passionate about life. To work in different teams, different departments makes the most diverse activities and interacting with people of unique backgrounds that we are not familiar with are some of the tools that the trust provides that can be very useful to find out what are our likes and dislikes. One day you may be responsible for a marketing strategy, until a brand new position in human resources is available and you decide to take a shot – and, before all of that, you were organising an event! There’s no need to be an expert – in fact, the trust was made to be a platform where young students and undergraduates can feel the taste of success and failure, and understand themselves better based on that. I study in chemistry bachelor, but in the trust, I have worked in all kinds of projects, since running exchange operations until making a budget, and today I can easily say the things that accelerate my pulse and push me to go further. Trying new things and seeing the results of your efforts lead to self-knowledge and this kind of understanding should be welcomed in this phase of our lives when we are in our teens, and we should decide our future even though we have no clue about our present. If you are looking for a place to figure out your path in life, the trust can help you with that.

People

Not everybody is super sociable, but we are humans, and we are supposed to like being around people. The good thing about the trust is that you will meet many people and, some of them you wouldn’t have the chance to know in other circumstances. I mean, it’s not just the incredible increase in the number of friends you have in Facebook, a weird and funny thing that happens to anyone who joins the trust. One day you are just living your normal and boring online life. The next day after you post a picture with your colleagues (picking up a volunteer or hanging out after a meeting), several friend requests will pop up and in most cases you have never met the people who want to be friends with you. But, hey! They work in the trust somewhere and, somehow, it makes you feel connected.What I’m talking about is to be working and realising projects with boys and girls from different colleges, universities, and even cities. It’s such a rich environment, where you can get to meet people who talk with various accents but connected with the same interests and desires of changing the world. We are all young, and we all have ideas to share.

Learn (new languages, new skills, and new ideas)

You may not do an exchange, or you may not lead a team (although these things are highly recommended), but one thing you will be doing for sure in the trust is to learn. Every day, every occasion, every responsibility you decide to assume, you will be learning. You got the point, right? Reunite hundreds of young people, full of hormones and ideas, and give them the challenge to overcome. The result is an intense learning environment, where one is teaching what he knows in exchange for learning other people’s specialities. And before you ask, no, you don’t have to join a two-hour class or to sign up to one of those tutorial videos websites. You just need to be open to share, to be present, and to learn as you go, trying and giving your best. Set an objective, define the way to reach it and work hard – the necessity to learn will show up along the way, and you will have to adapt yourself or give up in the process. Giving up is not something we accept eadily in the organisation.

Lead yourself, lead THe change

If you have ever been in love, you know the feeling: a heartbeat you can’t control, everything seems beautiful, a lot of energy coming out from your pores. Passion means having a strong sense of connection with someone or something, an endless source of motivation and will. Everything is possible, and you are confident you can overcome any challenges. Nevertheless, what we surely do is to discover what makes us feel passionate about life. To work in different teams, different departments makes the most diverse activities and interacting with people of unique backgrounds that we are not familiar with are some of the tools that the trust provides that can be very useful to find out what are our likes and dislikes. One day you may be responsible for a marketing strategy, until a brand new position in human resources is available and you decide to take a shot – and, before all of that, you were organising an event! There’s no need to be an expert – in fact, the trust was made to be a platform where young students and undergraduates can feel the taste of success and failure, and understand themselves better based on that. I study in chemistry bachelor, but in the trust, I have worked in all kinds of projects, since running exchange operations until making a budget, and today I can easily say the things that accelerate my pulse and push me to go further.

If you are looking for a place to figure out your path in life, the trust can help you with that.

The last item of this list is a resume of the other things I put here. A resume? Better yet: it is a consequence. In the trust, we believe that leaders are the fundamental solution for the worlds’ problems. I bet you will agree with me: imagine being able to know your strengths and weaknesses, having the clear idea of the things you want to be and the things you don’t want to do. More than that, you feel responsible for the world, the issues in our society bug you and there’s this internal rush to do something, to take an active part in the transformation world needs.However, you know that changing requires efforts, and that’s why you decide to connect yourself with people that have the same will as you do. Together, you can fill each other’s’ gaps and combine your talents to achieve something bigger. Using your qualities along with others to make a contribution, looking for the resolution of a problem, engaging others to feel responsible for the world as well. This kind of young people we want to give to the world and that’s why we are doing it. That’s why it is worth to join us, a place where more than 100 young people work in different projects and areas, each one walking towards the single goal of giving more and more leaders who are crazy enough to believe they can change the world. You know what? A leader I know, once said that the stupid ones are the people who change it. And I totally agree. What about you? If you do too, maybe this is the place for you too.
