Why should I volunteer?

  • It saves resources. Volunteering provides valuable community services so that funds can be given to support our partner agencies and spent on local improvements.
  • Volunteers gain professional experience. Volunteering is a great way to gain professional experience and improve skills as you give back to your community.
  • It brings people together. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people, as well as other volunteers who share the same interests and passions as you. Plus, it is a great way to team build with co-workers, and spend quality time with friends and family.
  • It promotes personal growth and self esteem. Understanding community needs helps foster empathy and self-efficacy.
  • Volunteering strengthens your community. As a volunteer you help support families, improve schools, help the sick and elderly, support youth, and beautify the community.
  • You learn a lot. Volunteers learn about their own hidden talents and interests, as well as gain knowledge of local resources available to solve community needs.
  • You get a chance to give back. People like to support community resources that they use themselves or that benefit those they care about.
  • Volunteering encourages civic responsibility. Community service and volunteerism are investments in our community and the people who live in it.
  • You make a difference. Every person counts! If 1,000 people gave 10 hours over 10 weeks, we would see 10,000 hours of community change.
