What do you get from Volunteering?

 Helping Others While Helping Yourself. With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer.

However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community.

The right match can help you find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.


                                                                     Volunteering promotes confidence. 

                                                                     Volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your  self-confidence,

                                                                     self-esteem, and life satisfaction. You are doing  good for others  

                                                                    and the community, which provides a natural sense of

                                                                    accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a

                                                                   sense of pride and identity. And the better you feel about yourself,

the more likely you are to  have a positive view of your life and future goals.
Volunteering combats depression. Reducing the risk of depression is another 
important benefit of

volunteering. A key risk factor for depression is social  isolation. Volunteering keeps you in regular

contact with others and helps you develop a solid support system, which in turn protects you against

stress and  depression when you’re going through challenging times.
