Volunteerism in the community is the way to obtain more civilized society and also the way to create personnel aware of the cooperation value.

To create influential volunteers in their communities, you must train them on that since childhood.

Here are some important factors that may help in raising that value in your child since the beginning:

1- Short stories

When telling a story for your child, try as much as possible to include the value of cooperation and tender in its content, and try to leave your positive impact on your child to remember it for a long time.

2- Your child toys

For example, during your child's birthday, talk to him about his old toys and things which he might give to other children who are in need specially after receiving variable new toys on his birthday.

You can convince him to do so by two steps. First: create a new space to store new gifts to dispense what is not wanted.

Second: the happiness of other children who are in need, but be careful with the quality of the gifts you are donating until your child knows what deserves for donation and what deserves to get rid of.

3- Donation box

The existence of a "Fund" for donations in your home in which your child sees every day his parents are donating with few coins, and in the end of the month the whole fund is to be donated to a charity organization, that will teach him since childhood the meaning of giving, it is even possible to create inside your child the desire to participate in charity even with a small part of his daily pocket money.

4- Role model

Try not to talk with your children about the imaginary characters in the fairy tales only, but inform him with stories of real historical figures that include cooperation value, it might be his future role model.

5- Student activities

Engage your child in student activities at school that would make him pass new experiences that will enable him to recognize the value of cooperation directly.

It’s worth mentioning that when you create a volunteering person in his society, you are providing him with new valuable features like self confidence, modesty, knowing the value of time and work.
