1 To learn something about yourself.
Maybe you’re like a pied-piper in disguise! Kids may ADORE you, but maybe you’ll only find that out after you spend an afternoon every week mentoring a youngster.
2 Because you’re passionate about a cause.
You always loved animals, so naturally you want to work at an animal hospital. Volunteer and be involved in something you really care about!
3 Learn some new skills…and add them to your resume!
You can learn a ton from volunteering, and what a great way to add stuff to your resume for future jobs or college applications.
4 Make someone else’s day.
Your extra little effort to help someone or some organization out can make a world of a difference to them.
5 Feel good about yourself!
Know that, after volunteering, you did something great. Really great. Be proud of yourself. Heck, treat yourself to some ice cream.
