Volunteer Reasons

Volunteer with friends or as a family. Think about looking for a volunteer opportunity that would be suitable for parents and children to do together, or for husband and wife or a group of friends to take on as a team. Volunteering with others can be a great way to get to know people better and can help keep you excited about volunteering. People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others. But it’s also OK to want some benefits for yourself from volunteering. Think about how much you receive when you give and consider why you want to volunteer. ¬†Here are just a few of the many possible motivations:

  • to share a skill or talent
  • to get to know your community
  • to demonstrate commitment to a cause/belief
  • to gain leadership skills
  • satisfaction from accomplishment
  • to donate your professional skills
  • to have an impact

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

~ Margaret Mead
