The intangible benefits of volunteering are numerous. Volunteers benefit from an improved sense of self-worth, brought about by the pride in knowing they have improved the lives of others. A sense of achievement and the fulfillment of making a difference in the community is invaluable and the rewards are far-reaching. Volunteers benefit from meeting new people, growing their skill set and gaining considerable experience.
