Benefits of volunteering
by TeenHelp March 26th 2024, 11:03 AM

  • Resume supplement. Having volunteer experience, especially in the field you want to get a career in, can add bulk to your resume and give you more of an edge when trying to get hired. Even if you only volunteer a few hours each week, it will help you stand out in job applications. Volunteer experience on a resume shows that you are active in your community and care about others.
  • Networking. Sometimes, volunteering can lead to a job later on. If they don't have any job openings, volunteering can still allow you to make connections that could lead to potential job offers, or you can have more people to use as references on job applications.
  • New interests. The activities you do during your volunteer work may turn out to be something you continue in your free time. For example, if you work at a soup kitchen, you may find that you really enjoy cooking. If you work outside planting new trees, you may notice that gardening appeals to you. Volunteering can help you expand your horizons and learn more about yourself.
  • Community. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to help people in need and in turn will make you feel better about yourself. You'll get the feeling of production and accomplishment as well. Additionally, working with others as a team can be a lot of fun!
  • Experience. Often it is easier to get volunteer experience than job experience as it is less competitive. Volunteering will give you skills in areas such as communication, leadership, and the ability to work well with others. These are all very valuable to employers and emphasize your competence.
