Recently, citing a very large shortfall on volunteers required to share crucial information with private home decision makers of the City and metropolis of Seattle, more attention is being paid to student volunteer groups.
The major reason is that students are apparently more open to change and therefore among the most likely to brave challenges of unpopular good causes.
This is a newly incorporated network [501 (c) (3) non-profit] which advocates for the rights and privileges of private home decision makers of single-family, duplex, and small to mid-sized mansions and estates in matters of making the best decisions for the best people in contract-related situations.
Shortage On Non-student Participation
There is a measurable lack of private citizens who are not students, volunteering to share information and sources (direct or indirect) with regard to our private home decision makers being better prepared against making bad decisions about contractor help on home projects as opposed to making the best decisions. This has been traced to over-exposure to volunteerism for popular causes (cancer, hunger, homeless, traditional education, etc funds) and to what appears to be an apparent negligence through considering, as an "unworthy cause, " volunteering to better educate and support our private home decision makers in matters of contract-related home maintenance and improvement.
The Fall Out
The result is that far more private home heads often find themselves victims of dishonest people. These include, but are not limited to, our seniors, disabled, and first-time home heads, as well. Our most vulnerable private home decisions makers.
The consensus of research point to the fact that, although contractors are overwhelmingly legitimate, up-standing, efficient, and honest people, there remain a corrupt element (representing all home-related trades) who target our residents on a daily basis.
Further, research evidences the fact that in most cases of contractor improprieties, residents were under-informed and unprepared to avoid it.
Why Volunteering is Necessary
There are several reasons. Here are a few. Because:
*most residents are under-informed and under-practiced against avoiding dishonest trades personnel;
*most residents are under-informed and under-practiced in scouting, selecting, and hiring best candidate contractors;
*most residents do not regularly confer with government and private allies in these matters before making hiring decisions;
*most residents do no detailed research on contractors to enable them to distinguish between good guys and bad guys.
Invariably, volunteering in this area through proactively sharing useful information, connecting residents with right preventative sources and resources, and encouraging residents towards how and when to use them, ideally, decreases incidents of victimization by dishonest contractors, and increases incidents of home project success by honest ones.
This supports the rights and privileges towards which our private home decision makers invest for home safety, security, maintenance, enhancement, and all other comforts and conveniences of the home setting.
Invariably, more efforts are being made to connect with student volunteer teams for this because students, in general, are most apt to look beyond that which is popular in support of that which is not. This is particularly true when it comes to good causes.
