Volunteering is a great opportunity for high school students to build their resume and learn valuable life lessons. Colleges love to see that their applicants have had experience volunteering.
Those who are unemployed find that volunteering can be a very rewarding way to pass time between jobs. Volunteer work helps you maintain camaraderie and stay active while also building and polishing skills to use in your future profession. Future employers like seeing volunteering in your resume instead of a gap. Volunteering also provides a great networking atmosphere. Who knows, you might meet your next employer!
