Reasons giving back to the community is good.
2. Social opportunities - Loneliness and boredom are common among retirees, students, and people who recently move into a new city/neighborhood. Volunteering can relieve a sense of social isolation.
3. Give back to your community - Doing something for the community you live in and returning the favor to those who have helped you are strong motivators. Everyone, rich or poor, takes from society, and volunteering is one way to show a sense of appreciation
4. Boost your self-esteem - Many volunteers experience a sense of increased self-esteem and greater self-worth. Helping others makes you feel good about yourself, because you’re doing something for someone that they couldn’t do for themselves.
5. Gain a new perspective - Volunteering can offer a new perspective—seeing people who are worse off than you are, yet still hanging in there, can help you see your life in a whole new light.
