WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING INVOLVED IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT & HOW IT CAN BENEFIT YOU!
Connecting with Others:
Volunteering allows you to connect with others in your community, to make a joint effort in making it a better place. It can bring you closer to others, as well as getting to learn more about the back stories of people in your community, which creates a close bond! Dedicating some of your time towards small tasks can greatly benefit your community and help you make friends and develop your social skills.
Gaining work experience and valuable skills:
Most people think that because volunteer work is unpaid, the skills one does is basic and 'pointless.' They are not aware of the fact that volunteering gives the chance for people to learn very valuable job skills, and gain beneficial experience that cannot be gained elsewhere. Without making a long term commitment, it can offer a great way to gain experience in new fields that can help an individual advance in their career.
Volunteering could possibly give you a life-long memory for you to hold onto. The fun that you can have when volunteering and working with others in your community, is a feeling of belonging and peace.
