  • to be of benefit to the community and the volunteer;
  • of the volunteer’s own free will, without coercion and with no financial payment

Volunteering not only has a positive impact on your campus or community, but it also provides you with a valuable opportunity to:

  • Get involved in the community
  • Meet new people
  • Increase your sense of civic responsibility
  • Learn transferable skills
  • Develop new interests
  • Boost your career options
  • Identify potential employment references
