FaLa620-"who can afford to put all of that on hold while you spend all of your time working at a job that doesn't pay?"

Again, it is not an either/or situation. You don`t have to give up a paying job in order to volunteer, or to go to school or to further your skills.

I`ve worked more than full time for over 25 years. In that time I`ve attended school full time, I`ve volunteered countless hours and just recently attended college classes just because there was a skill I wanted to learn because I thought it would help my current job (paid for it myself and I didn`t miss a bit of work).

No one is saying put anything on hold. Do what it takes to pay bills, but you`ll still have time to further your education and/or volunteer.

Of course, it will mean giving up some of your computer and video game time..and I realize that that`s just unreasonable to some people. (of course, this is the same people that complain of lack of opportunities)

This doesn't really work for most people. If you`re in school, then sure, it might be a good idea. But if you`re done with school and you`re in the "real world" you have to think about bills - rent, utilities, car, etc... who can afford to put all of that on hold while you spend all of your time working at a job that doesn`t pay? Volunteering is great for people in school, or those with rich relatives that will pay your bills while you`re out making the world a better place. But for the rest of us, it`s really not an option.
