Why Volunteer

People choose to volunteer within their communities for a variety of reasons. Some volunteer because they:

  • like to be able to give something back to the community
  • want to make a difference in someone’s life
  • want to develop new skills
  • want to spend time away from work or a busy life

I’ve volunteered in some capacity since I was a teenager because I wanted to give back. As an adult I’ve volunteered to:

  • give back
  • meet new people
  • stay engaged in the community
  • take my mind off my work responsibilities
  • to develop skills

Why do you volunteer?
