Taking the Volunteer Test
There are many reasons you may want to volunteer and probably the biggest reason is to give back. Helping others is incredibly rewarding and volunteers receive a great sense of purpose and satisfaction. There are other benefits though as well. Along the way, you can gain work experience, learn new skills, and even learn a new language, culture, and way of life. Volunteering also provides an opportunity to gain new perspectives and may impact your life as much as you are impacting others.
