Come Join Us
People have many different reasons for volunteering.
Some people volunteer as a means of giving back to the community they live in. Others have skills or knowledge which they know could be put to valuable use in a volunteer context.
Many people simply want to do something different and treat volunteering as a chance to try their hand at something new. Not only does volunteering keep them active, it brings them into contact with people from all walks of life, people they might not otherwise meet. Volunteering can add to existing skills which transfer into the workplace.
What all volunteers share, however, is the knowledge that what they choose to give in time and effort, be it 5 minutes or 5 hours, helps contribute to making the world around them a better place to live.
Everyone has something they can give to the community. What is it that you can give?
