It really is ok to ask, “What’s in it for me?” In fact, volunteering can be a great way to develop skills, learn more about career options, make friends, garner new professional contacts, develop your professional network, get exercise, spend time outdoors/with animals/with kids, or even just shake up your routine.
Yet, volunteers rarely speak of the benefits of volunteering to themselves – maybe it feels a bit too self-centered, or too far from the altruistic vision of the “selfless” volunteer. But who says that doing good and enjoying yourself while meeting your own personal/professional goals can’t happen at the same time? Part of finding the right volunteer opportunity is being honest about what you hope to learn and accomplish.
Begin your volunteer journey by registering for a Volunteer Orientation.
