What is Volunteering?

What's in it for me?
There are many benefits to volunteering your time. here's just a few of them:

  • it's an excellent way to boost your confidence
  • it can seriously enhance your work and career prospects
  • it can help build valuable work experience
  • it can make you feel good to make a positive difference to your community

Will I get paid?
You won’t be paid, but you may be given expenses for things like travel and meals.
