Reasons for volunteering are as diverse as are the volunteers! For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community and make a difference in the lives of others. Other people volunteer in order to develop new skills or build on existing skills and knowledge. But whatever the motivation, volunteers are united in finding the experience both challenging and rewarding.
Research has shown that volunteering offers many health benefits, especially for older adults.
According to Greater Good at Berkeley, the coronavirus pandemic has led to a practice of social distancing, creating feelings of stress and isolation in many of us. Some groups have been hit particularly hard, including the elderly, parents juggling work and child care, and people who have lost their jobs. Against this backdrop, many people have turned to volunteering to help make a difference, even at a distance.
“So, if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed or out of sorts lately, volunteering can be a way to help bring you a sense of control in a stressful situation – a happy side effect of the vital work volunteers do.” (Elizabeth Hopper, 7/3/2020)
