Want to consider recruiting trackers as well?

Trackers are always welcome but right now we're looking for dedicated mappers as they play two roles rolled into one. :D
Mappers wanted. Read this to get started. Payment = Recognition = Priceless.

I think you will get a better responds for trackers than mappers. This is because your post here scared them away. :lol:

Anyway, I think it's easier to start off as a tracker. Got to buildup the interest first.

You may have a point there, Zues.

C. Be part of your community

No man or woman is an island. We sometimes take for granted the community that we live in. People and societies co-depend on each other for survival but growth of such things as commercialism are seeing traditional values being disregarded. Communities are suffering due to the growth of secular societies but at the same time we can really bridge that expanding gap through volunteering. Volunteering is ultimately about helping others and having an impact on people’s wellbeing. What better way is there to connect with your commmunity and give a little back? As a volunteer, you certainly return to society some of the benefits that society gives you.

Haha, didn't know you keturunan Perak, Ara_ffat. Saya keturunan Pattani (kurun ke-19), turun dari Vietnam (kurun ke-18), turun dari Cina (kurun ke-17).

Unfortunately we still do not have a dedicated Perak Mapper. :(

Will keep on advertising. I need to continue to encourage them to volunteer.

D. Motivation and sense of achievement

Fundamentally, volunteering is about giving your time, energy and skills freely. Unlike many things in life there is choice involved in volunteering. As a volunteer you have made a decision to help on your own accord, free from pressure to act from others. Volunteers predominantly express a sense of achievement and motivation, and this is ultimately generated from your desire and enthusiasm to help. Sometimes volunteers are regarded as do-gooders and those that hold that view also assume that one person can never make a difference. It may be true that no one person can solve all the world’s problems, but what you can do is make that little corner of the world where you live just that little bit better.

E. Boost your career options

A survey carried out by leading businesses showed that:

* 73% of employers would recruit a candidate with volunteering experience over one without
* 94% of employers believe that volunteering can add to skills
* 94% of employees who volunteered to learn new skills had benefited either by getting their first job, improving their salary, or being promoted

Also, if you are thinking of a career change then volunteering as a mapper is a perfect way to make new friends. You meet people from diverse background here at Malsingmaps that they can advise you on how to go about doing it.

F. New interests and hobbies

Sometimes we do get locked into the “rat-race” of life and volunteering can give that escape to everday routine and create a balance in our lives. Finding new interests and hobbies through volunteering can be fun, relaxing and energizing. Help us track a new unmapped area or trace rivers and lakes from Google Earth for a few hours a week or help us draw the map of the city you live in. The energy and sense of fulfilment can carry over to a work situation and sometimes helps to relieve tensions and foster new perspectives for old situations. Sometimes a volunteer experience can lead you to something you never even thought about or help you discover a hobby or interest you were unaware of. You can strengthen your personal/professional mission and vision by exploring opportunities and expanding your horizons.
