What's going to happen here?
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, to the community and is dedicated to different causes, but the benefits can be even greater for you, as a volunteer.
Although volunteers are not paid, you'll get a wide range of opportunities to develop new skills, to work as part of a team, to set goals and achieve them while accepting high levels of responsibility, to form new friendships and enjoy the team spirit of a tightly knit unit. It gives you a chance to discover what kind of things you're best at and what kind of activities you enjoy the most.
Why come here?
Donating your time is a great way to feel like you have the power to change things for the better. When causes depend on you, it can change the way you look at yourself. You can feel proud of the goals that you've achieved for an organization.
The advantage is you have the chance to get involved in different activities and feel a real sense of achievement when you see the results. Because they spend a lot of time together, most people who work on volunteering projects form close friendships.
Finally, volunteering can help save you from being bored — it gives you a place where you can have a good time and keep yourself busy, all while giving back to the community.
