So, what’s in it for you?
Making a Difference
To start with, the most obvious benefit of volunteering is it’s an extremely rewarding experience. It’s so easy to get stuck in a routine as a student with class, homework, sleep and repeat; or as an adult with lunches, hobbies, sleep and repeat. It will be worth it to switch things up a bit to make a difference in the community and your personal life.
Developing Job Skills
Giving a helping hand to the community will not only result in networking, but can also be a great asset to your resume. Plan on being a teacher? Volunteer in a classroom. Pursuing a career in environmental science? Find a recycling or trail restoration program. This is your chance to gain essential leadership experience.
Explore Other Interests
Sometimes we find ourselves in a monotonous routine. Volunteering is a great way to delve into a unique career path or new hobby. Things like teaching classes at Parenting Arizona, spending a few hours a week building a new website, or talking to donors, could result in new interests you didn’t know were there.
Meeting New Friends
Volunteering brings people from all walks of life together and no matter your personality, interests, or background, you’re bound to connect with another Good Samaritan like yourself. There is no telling who you may meet, or what sort of impact they could have on your life, and this brings possibly one of the most exciting aspects to volunteering.
