What is Volunteering?
Volunteering is any activity that one does for the betterment of others for no payment or reward. Volunteering can take all kinds of forms, and can be done individually, with a group, or with a nonprofit like those listed below. However, at the heart of all volunteering is service without the expectation of anything in return.
In fact, while putting volunteer work on your resume is strongly encouraged, students who regularly help others have been shown to develop other, important life skills that help launch them even further into life. The empathy, cultural awareness, and passion for service gained from a volunteer experience will remain long after the work itself is done.
