Benefits of Volunteering 

Volunteering is a rewarding way to contribute to society, develop new skills, and make a positive impact on the lives of others. Volunteering can also benefit you, as a volunteer, as you can gain valuable experience, enhance your personal and professional networks, and improve your health and wellbeing.

Learn new skills and knowledge

Volunteering can expose you to different fields, tasks, and challenges that can help you acquire new competencies and insights. You can also share your own expertise and talents with others and learn from their perspectives and feedback. 

Expand your network and connections

Volunteering can introduce you to a diverse range of people, from fellow volunteers, staff, beneficiaries, to community leaders and stakeholders. You can build meaningful relationships, exchange ideas and information, and access new opportunities and resources. 

Boost confidence and self-esteem

Volunteering can help you overcome personal barriers, such as shyness, anxiety, or low self-confidence. By taking on new responsibilities, achieving goals, and receiving recognition, you can feel more capable, competent, and valued. 

Enhance wellbeing and happiness

Volunteering can provide you with a sense of purpose, fulfilment, and satisfaction. You can also enjoy the positive emotions that come from helping others, being part of a team, and having fun. Volunteering can also reduce stress, depression, and loneliness by giving you a sense of belonging and support.
