We all agree that volunteering helps us build a better society. But are you aware of what volunteering is doing for the person doing it?
Volunteers rarely speak of the benefits of volunteering to themselves. But for us at Vee, volunteers are the heart of everything we do. They inspire us to be the best we can, and we aspire to encourage them.
Every week, we will unfold one benefit of volunteering to keep us motivated.
Volunteering helps you get connected.
Revealing sociological research showed that the number of Americans saying there is no one with whom they discuss important matters nearly tripled between 1985 and 2004, with 25% of them feel like they have no one they call a friend.
Volunteering in your local community is both an essential and fun way to meet new people.
If you’re feeling lonely, new to the community, or maybe want to open your heart for new connections - being a part of a team with a common goal is one of the best ways to make new friends and strengthen existing relationships.
