What is volunteering?

Volunteers are people who:

  • Provide their services of their own free will
  • Do not receive any monetary reward (doesn't include out of pocket expenses)
  • Benefit the community and themselves by participating in volunteer programs
  • Complement, but do not replace or threaten the livelihood of, paid workers
What are the benefits of volunteering?

We find that volunteering provides a two way experience that can provide many benefits including:

  • Gaining new skills and experience in an area of interest that can create pathways to employment
  • Meeting new people and being involved in meaningful activities
  • Provide opportunities for people to share their skills and knowledge with others
