• Volunteering is a voluntary act of an individual or group freely giving time and labour for community service.

  • Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, NGOs etc.

  • Skills-based volunteering is leveraging the specialized skills and the talents of individuals to strengthen the infrastructure of nonprofits, helping them build and sustain their capacity to successfully achieve their missions. This is in contrast to traditional volunteering, where volunteers do something other than their professional work.

  • Volunteering is contribution of time, effort and talent to a need, cause or mission without financial gain.

  • Volunteering is all about you being able to contribute some of your own time to help people in our communities. Volunteers support our communities and add to them in their own unique way using a wide variety of skills, knowledge and experience.

 

What can volunteering do for you?

Volunteering can make a positive difference in your life and the life of those around you.  As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to:-

  • Have fun whilst giving back to the community

  • Learn new skills that look great on your resume

  • Do something you have always wanted to do

  • Make a difference


Principles of volunteering

  • Volunteering benefits the community and the volunteer

  • Volunteer work is unpaid

  • Volunteering is always a matter of choice

 

 

 

 

 

Volunteering has many benefits. It gives people self-confidence and satisfaction, social contact, the ability to use previously established skills or develop new ones, a chance to follow your passion and a possible start to paid employment.

 

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. 

 

Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re considering a new career, volunteering can help you get experience in your area of interest. Even if you’re not planning on changing careers, volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, project planning, task management, and organization. You might feel more comfortable stretching your wings at work once you’ve honed these skills in a volunteer position first.

 

Teaching you valuable job skills

Just because volunteer work is unpaid does not mean the skills you learn are basic. Volunteering opportunities at our organization provide extensive training.

  • Volunteering can also help you build upon skills you already have and use them to benefit the greater community. For instance, if you hold a successful sales position, you can raise awareness for your favorite cause as a volunteer advocate, while further developing and improving your public speaking, communication, and marketing skills.

 

Gaining career experience

Volunteering offers you the chance to try out a new career without making a long-term commitment. It is also a great way to gain experience in a new field. In some fields, you can volunteer directly at our organization that does the kind of work you’re interested in. 

 

  • Your volunteer work might also expose you to companies, professional / Government organizations or internships that could benefit your career.

 

 

Volunteering or community service is fast becoming an essential part of a stand-out resume. Employers are looking for evidence of commitment, loyalty and a strong desire to contribute to the success of society all of which volunteering demonstrates.
