Benefits of volunteering:
Bring more fun to your life! You can use volunteering to pursue your hobbies while making a difference. If you’re interested in the outdoors, you could volunteer at a walking or biking event (such as Crankworx or local races). Interested in art? you could volunteer at the Arts Village! The list goes on…
Meet new people. You may make some new friends along the way!
Help by sharing your talents, and you could even learn new skills
Strengthen your job prospects. You may meet people that can become your mentors or part of your professional network
Create a better work/life balance. How would you like to spend your time outside of work? Is there a cause you’d like to support with your time?
Gain a sense of achievement. Bring some more fun and fulfilment into your life.
