Similar to a paid job, volunteering provides opportunities for social connections and personal growth. Sometimes volunteering is preparation for a paid job, but often volunteering is considered an important part of a person’s schedule simply because it’s fun! And of course volunteering provides much-needed help to non-profits in our community.
