Recognizing your own ability to make a difference is not only empowering, it can offer life-long rewards not only in helping others but in future personal endeavours. Volunteering can introduce you to people from all walks of life, offering a new perspective on others in the community and the wider world. A huge part of volunteering is developing a greater awareness of the issues facing communities, enabling students to develop the skills required to identify solutions more easily whilst, at the same time, becoming more aware of existing programs available.
On a personal level, volunteers receive valuable hands on experience whilst drawing on the knowledge of experienced adults. Regardless of the role undertaken, volunteering can cement lifelong friendships, influence future lifestyle decisions, introduce new skills and provide insights into a future career. Take a look at just a few of the many volunteering opportunities which are available to students.
