Why Volunteer?

At its best, volunteering contributes to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It values diversity and brings people together across class, ethnicity, gender, age and ability. It also provides an opportunity for people to play non-traditional roles and demonstrate leadership. Volunteering is one way that you can be part of the solution.
