I’ve done a lot of volunteering in my life (no, I’m not boasting!) in various fields such as animal welfare, teaching English, and working with seniors. Being a volunteer is very rewarding, and is something I would recommend to anyone who has time. There are lots of benefits to being a volunteer, and here are just a few of them.

If you want to have a career in a particular field, related voluntary work will often help. With the current difficulties in finding a job, anything that will give you an edge is a good idea. Being a volunteer will also give you some idea of what a job is really like and whether you will enjoy it.
