Kids may ADORE you, but maybe you'll only find that out after you spend an afternoon every week mentoring a youngster.
2. To have fun!
Volunteer doing something you love, and it will be amazing!
3. Because you're passionate about a cause.
You always loved animals, so naturally you want to work at an animal hospital. Volunteer and be involved in something you really care about!
4. To explore career possibilities.
Maybe you're heading to (or are already in) college or the 'work world'. By volunteering at your local hospital you can find out if you're interested in going into the medical field by studying to become a doctor or nurse. Experience is key!
5. Learn some new skills.
You can learn a ton from volunteering, and what a
great way to add stuff to your resume for future
jobs or college applications!
6. It's time to get off the couch!
From the time you get home "til the time you go to bed, you're parked in front of the TV. Honestly. You know you're bored with it. Be productive for a change!
7. Add to your resume or college application.
Maybe you need to volunteer for 50 hours in order to graduate. Awesome! Get out there and volunteer your time (and who knows, maybe you'll do extra hours because it's so awesome!)
8. To fulfill graduation requirements.
It's ok, because we know the reason you want to go to an awesome college is so you can work at an awesome not-for-profit.
9. Feel good about yourself and make someone else's day.
Know that, after volunteering, you did something great. Really great. Be proud of yourself. Heck, treat yourself to some ice cream.
10. It's time to DO SOMETHING!
Apathy is boring.
