I am going to take this opportunity to talk about volunteering with the hope that those who read this maybe become inspired to take up a volunteering experience. What is volunteering I hear you ask?
"Volunteering is a selfless act undertaken for the benefit of others to improve quality of life."
How good does that sound!!!
Volunteering is such a rewarding experience for the person volunteering and the people and/or project they are suporting.
Have you considered volunteering? Do you have a passion, interest or something you are curious about you could volunteer some of your time to? Why do this I hear you ask?
Benefits of volunteering for you:
~ improve physical and mental health
~ Chance to learn new skills or share your skills with others
~ Increase your employability
~ Opportunity to contribute to well-being of your local community
~ Sense of achievement
~ Meet new people and be part of a local social network
Interested?? I hope so.
