The late Maya Angelou once said: “To make a difference is not a matter of accident, a matter of casual occurrence of the tides. People choose to make a difference.” This rings true for all volunteers. Throughout America, the communities in which we live, work and play are better because so many give so selflessly of themselves. They choose to make a difference, and what they do is not nearly as important as the fact that they are simply doing something—something of substance that fills a need. Volunteering to serve on a nonprofit board is a little different. Effective board service is about much more than filling a seat at the table and attaching your name to a cause.

When we talk about the cost of college education and student loan debt, we often talk in terms of rising tuition rates and the total amount of money borrowed by recent graduates. We do this for good cause: the cost of college is becoming unaffordable for too many students, and the average amount of debt — $29,400 per borrower, according to the Institute for College Access & Success — is a heavy burden for our youngest workers. Rarely do we talk about the student loan debt shared by parents, but we should because it’s significant.
