The power of volunteering


Volunteers play a vital role in addressing a wide range of social, environmental and humanitarian issues. They serve as mentors, tutors, caregivers, advocates and activists, working to support causes they believe in and create positive change in the world.


Fulfillment and purpose


One of the most significant benefits of volunteering is the sense of fulfillment and purpose it brings to both the volunteer and the recipients of their service. By giving their time and energy to support others, volunteers experience a profound sense of satisfaction and joy that comes from making a positive impact in the world.


Raising awareness

National Volunteer Week also serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of volunteering and community engagement. It's a time to encourage individuals of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in their communities, whether through formal volunteering opportunities or simple acts of kindness and generosity.

Highlighting mentors in youth programs


For youth mentoring and after-school programs, National Volunteer Week is a chance to highlight the critical role of mentors in helping at-risk children. Mentors serve as positive role models, guides and advocates for youth, providing them with support, guidance and encouragement as they navigate life's challenges.
