Benefits of Volunteering?
It can give you a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. It can boost your self-esteem by giving you a feeling of purpose. It will help you to build close relationships with others in your community or with the members of your nonprofit organization. Volunteering can help you build a network of others who can advise you or lead you in a different direction if things aren’t working out as expected. Volunteering will help you gain new skills, such as leadership skills, team-building, communication, or even administrative skills that will be useful in your new career or professional life if you end up not volunteering anymore.
By volunteering, you might get a job at a nonprofit organization that may lead to paid work opportunities in your chosen field of study or something entirely different.
