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.
