What are some reasons to volunteer?

  • Good for your soul. Nothing beats seeing the smile of a person you helped and knowing you didn’t just make their day – you made their life.
  • Good for your network. You’ll work alongside community movers and shakers who have hopes and values just like yours.
  • Good for your career. You’ll get some great experience to add to your résumé – and maybe even some new skills.
