"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, they just have the heart" - Elizabeth Andrew

Volunteering means giving your time and abilities to aid others (usually a nonprofit organization) without the want of financial compensation. Put simply, volunteering is a service to your community.
 Did you know that when you volunteer, it isn't only for the benefits of others? You can personal benefit through volunteering, such as:

  • meeting new people and build community
  • gain knowledge and understanding of other ways of life
  • gain a sense of purpose and become happier
  • boost your self-esteem
  • advance your career by improving job prospects
  • spending meaningful time with others can reduce stress
  • increase your brain function
