Nowadays it’s very hard to do volunteer work due to busy schedules and family responsibilities. However, the benefits of volunteering are great not only for you but for the world too. On the other side, it is also difficult for people to find a suitable and nearest place to volunteer their time. Let me tell you that there are different ways like VolunteerMatch which helps you to find a community service or volunteer work near you. This is a very great tool in America because you can find lots of volunteer opportunities and community service ideas near your area.

Why Volunteer or Community Service?

Volunteer has many personal benefits for you like expanding your network of contacts, reaching out to the community, count in your scholarship forms, acquire new skills and even advance your career. However, you involve yourself in the great cause and help community who need your support.

“What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.” — Aristotle

The above quote of Aristotle reminds us that we are living in a community not in a box. We can’t be so selfish that we just care about our life. The goal is to help others. We rise by helping others. Volunteering or Community Service is very important because it let us know who is living around us and what are they experiencing from? If you never go (in community), you will never know. It creates empathy and build a strong relationship in community. Volunteering or Community Service is fun. It also helps you reduce stress, combat depression and keep you inspired for living a good life. If you think you alone can’t bring any big change. Remember you make a difference because every person counts.

I was part of Community College Initiative Program (CCI Program) 2016-17 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The program required each student to complete 125 hours of volunteering in the community. This is the best part of the program. It makes the student to involve in the community and support them. Like, in my country very few people wants to volunteer their time for community. I completed more than 150 hours for the program. However, I was one of those students who complete the hours late. It was very hard for me to find volunteer opportunities and match with my schedule. Even VolunteerMatch was not very helpful. I found the organizations very late which is why I was late in completing the 125 hours for the program.
