What is volunteering?

Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain“.
(Volunteering Australia 2015)

Volunteering can involve any number of different activities, organisations and causes. Whether you’re helping a person in need, your local community, an endangered species, or the planet: all volunteering opportunities share the common trait of donating your time for the benefit of others.

Why do people volunteer?

People volunteer for a number of different reasons ranging from a desire to learn new skills, gaining work experience, fulfilling Centrelink obligations, having fun, helping others, forming new friendships, developing self-confidence and becoming more involved in the local community. 

Whatever the reason, by volunteering you’ll be making a positive impact to your local or global community!
