Benefits of Volunteering

From reading tutors, home builders, to taking care of children and the elderly, most of us would agree, volunteers empower and inspire those they serve.

But is volunteering a one way street?  Are volunteers simply giving their time, expertise, and their services away?

Studies have shown the priceless benefits of service:

  • Active participation in the community
  • Learning and developing new skills, new interests, and hobbies
  • Motivation and source of achievement
  • Meeting diverse range of people
  • New experiences (and more!)

Bottom line, we are social creatures.  We learn and thrive when we interact, collaborate, and serve others. (Full Story)

If you don’t want to commute, preferring to work from the comfort of your home office, online volunteering may be your calling (I didn’t know such a thing existed until now)!

Your presence, experiences, and expertise are priceless!  Volunteering is easy.  Start today!

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.” (Mahatma Gandhi)

Gotcha Gandhi.  I’ll start knocking some doors.  We’ll see what happens.  Wish me luck! 🙂
