Benefits of Volunteering

For You

You can make important networking contacts; learn or develop skills to add to your resume; gain work experience and references.  Your self-esteem may increase as you feel needed and are meeting new people.  You may receive in-house training or scholarships but ultimately you are making a difference in the world!

For Your Organization

Organizations like the energy and new ideas volunteers can bring.  This helps them have an opportunity to better reach the community by expanding or developing their service.  They get feedback on their programs and expertise help and/or advice from dedicated volunteer members.
