Volunteering is by no means a one way proposition. If you've ever volunteered for anything, you've likely learned that giving really is it's own reward. Bringing the skills you've honed over a lifetime, getting out of the house making a difference in someone's life, even hanging out with others can bring a much-needed sense of purpose into all of our lives.
Wondering if you're qualified? See if this is you:
- Friendly (often)
- Compassionate (frequently)
- Patient (mostly)
- Got a bit of time (bits and pieces)
- Flexible schedule
- Handy (at something!)
