Top 5 Reasons You Should Volunteer
Develop your résumé
Volunteering introduces you to new ideas and leadership opportunities, plus you gain valuable experience and new skills which you can add to your résumé.
Have fun and try something new
Maybe kids adore you. Maybe you’re very good at organizing projects. Or maybe you’re an excellent reader who can help a younger student discover the joy of books. When you volunteer, you discover hidden talents and enhance your strengths at the same time.
Feel good about making a difference!
Every time you volunteer, you are making the world a better place. Give it a try and see how rewarding it is to brighten someone’s day.
Meet new people
Volunteering is a great way to meet people, connect with others in your community, practise English, and build networks.
