It is hard to imagine a world without any volunteers. You may find countless lists on how volunteer work can benefit the person volunteering by helping them advance their career and improve their health but today we wanted to focus on something else. In honour of National Volunteer Week 2015, we are highlighting a few of the many reasons why the work that volunteers do are outstanding and should never go unnoticed. In addition to the many benefits volunteering has for individuals, the community one volunteers their time to improves greatly.
“A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock.” – Volunteer Canada
