Volunteering may be one of the most valuable experiences of your life. It’s a double win: your community or cause benefits from your work and you benefit from your experiences.
I To learn something about yourself
Maybe you’re like a pied-piper in disguise! Kids may ADORE you, but maybe you’ll only find that out after you spend an afternoon every week mentoring a youngster.
III Because you’re passionate about a cause
You enjoy the company of children or elderly, so naturally you want to work with them. Volunteer and be involved in something you really care about !
V It’s time to get off the couch:
From the time you get home ‘til the time you go to bed, instead of sitting in front of the TV all the time Be productive for a change, do something rewarding !
VII To fulfill graduation requirements.
Maybe you need to volunteer for 50 hours in order to graduate. Awesome! Get out there and volunteer your time (and who knows, maybe you’ll do extra hours because it’s so awesome!)
IX Feel good about yourself!.
Know that, after volunteering, you did something great. Really great. Be proud of yourself.
II To have fun!
Volunteer doing something you love, and it will be amazing!
IV To explore career possibilities.
Maybe you’re heading to (or are already in) college or the ‘work world’. By volunteering at your local hospital or bank you can find out if you’re interested in specializing into the field. Experience is key!
VI Learn some new skills & add them to your resume!
You can learn a ton from volunteering, and what a great way to add stuff to your resume for future jobs or college applications!
VIII Make someone else’s day.
Your extra little effort to help someone or some organization out can make a world of a difference to them.
X It’s time to DO SOMETHING!
Apathy is boring. No matter what your reason is we want to help you and after you’re done come back & add your volunteer experience to the Youth Volunteer Service (YVS) online section.
