Do You Know the Benefits of Volunteering?

Did you know there are many benefits of volunteering?

  • Volunteering provides mental and physical rewards.  It makes you healthier: Moods and emotions, like optimism and joy strengthen the immune system.
  • It saves resources.  Volunteering provides valuable community services so more money can be spent where it counts!  According to Independent Sector, the value of a volunteer hour in California is $27.59 (2015 data).
  • Volunteers are able to explore new areas of interest and develop skills while learning from others.  Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
  • It brings people together and strengthens the community.  Volunteers assist in uniting people from diverse backgrounds to work toward a common goal.
  • You get a chance to give back!  People like to support community resources that benefit people they care about.
  • You make a difference.  Every person counts!
