Volunteering is serving without compensation.
Volunteering is a great way to contribute to your community and to gain experience. It also promotes personal growth.
There are many ways to volunteer. It can be as simple as picking up trash in your neighborhood or in a local park. It can be assisting in the delivery of meals to the homebound elderly, working in a soup kitchen, mentoring a young student, or helping educate people about important issues. It could even mean going to another area of the world at a time of crisis to provide assistance. The opportunities are endless.
There are many faith based charities and non-profit organizations with whom one can volunteer. Newspapers will often list organizations needing volunteers. There are also web sites dedicated to helping people find an organization with which they would like to volunteer.
