The Benefits of Volunteering

  • It’s good for your health. Volunteering has been shown to reduce stress, improve mood, and boost self-esteem. It can also help you stay physically active, especially if you volunteer for activities that involve physical work.
  • It gives you a sense of purpose. When you volunteer, you are making a difference in the lives of others. This can give you a sense of purpose and satisfaction that you may not get from other activities.

  • It teaches you new skills. Volunteering can help you learn new skills that you can use in your personal or professional life.
  • It strengthens our community. Volunteering helps to build a stronger community by connecting people and providing resources to those in need. When you volunteer, you are helping to make your community a better place for everyone.
