Volunteering is fulfilling
The more we give, the happier we feel.
Volunteering increases self-confidence and fulfills our need to help others.
You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment.
Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity.
Volunteering can lead to consistent employment opportunities and open pathways to future study

Why Volunteer with the YMCA
Most of us want to help others in some way, shape or form. We do not volunteer, for the most part, because it benefits us. We volunteer because it makes a difference to others.
But, there are even more benefits to volunteering. We notice a subtle shift in ourselves when we volunteer. We feel more connected to others, and we become less absorbed in the normal stresses of daily life. We share our experiences with others and want to help more.
Sure, we know that volunteering makes us feel good. Yet, did you know that, when you volunteer, you are improving your life and maybe even your health?
The benefits of volunteering are countless. But there are social, emotional, physical, and professional perks.
