What is volunteering?
Volunteering is the provision of time for free, giving back to your community in varied forms. It's a great way to stay engaged with society and help others.
Volunteering is a fundamental building block of civil society, as outlined in the Universal Declaration of Volunteering, 2001. It brings the noblest aspirations of humankind to life – the pursuit of peace, freedom, opportunity, safety, and justice for all people. Volunteering is an essential part of all societies, making real the declaration of the United Nations that "We, the Peoples" have the power to change the world (IAVE).
Individuals from all walks of life volunteer for varied reasons and in varied forms. From retirees to students, people who enjoy social connection, supporting their community and learning new skills gain great satisfaction from helping others.
