Sharing the Experience of a Lifetime

Volunteering Why Should I Do It? (source:pbskids.org)

Volunteering takes up our time, energy, and sometimes, money. It can be hard work. It can find us doing and seeing new things, which can be challenging and even a little scary. So why does anyone even go there?

Well, here's a reason:

Volunteering is good for others
The world is not a perfect place, and many people, animals, places, and communities need help. Governments and professionals try to meet everyone's needs, but it's impossible for them to do it all.

This is why people become volunteers: because they can make a difference where someone or something needs help. If people never help each other and only care about themselves, the world becomes a crueler, sadder place. But when we volunteer our time, money, or talents, we help make our planet a better, happier home where people work together to make life easier for all.

Volunteering is good for YOU
Are you thinking, "What's in it for me?" The answer is, plenty! Here are some of the things you might get in return for your giving:

* Making new friends
* Gaining important skills and experience that will help you later in life
* Making connections that can lead to a job or career
* Seeing more of your community and world
* Building confidence and self-esteem

People who become volunteers usually lead richer, happier, and more satisfying lives than those who don't volunteer.
