When was the last time you volunteered?
Nearly 63 million people in the United States volunteered in 2014. That’s about 25% of the population, or about 1 in every 4 people, with a median of 50 hours donated during the year.
Volunteering is a great way to get to know others and make friends, to develop new skills, to learn about complex issues, to garner new professional contacts, to spend time outdoors, or even to shake up your routine.
It’s also one of the best ways to make a difference in your community. It’s a beneficial support for your target organization, too, helping to offset its costs.
