Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good without financial gain.
Volunteering is all about you being able to contribute some of your own time, skills, knowledge and experience to help people in the community.
Volunteering has many benefits. It gives people self-confidence and satisfaction, social contact, the ability to use previously established skills or develop new ones, a chance to follow your passion and a possible pathway to paid employment.
Volunteering is fast becoming an essential part of a stand-out resume with employers looking for evidence of commitment, loyalty and a strong desire to contribute to the success of society, all which volunteering demonstrates.
