It is true that when we volunteer we don't get paid.However, being a force for good through serving our community and bringing positive changes and joy to the lives of people we help, fill us with pride and gives us huge fulfilment.
In fact, volunteering is for all people,old,young ,black,white, big,small,man,women. There are a variety of jobs we can volunteer in. For example, helping the the elderly or the disabled, working for charities or in our local libraries or councel. Some people may even travel overseas to join those refugee camps where there are many people who are fleeing violence and unrest back home and who are in desperate need for assistance.Through volunteering, we become more humane and compassionate and we develop sympathy to those who are around us who are going through hard time. As a result, we become less selfish and less stressed as we realise that our problems are not as serious as they seemed to us before.besides, we get the opprtunities to meet people with different personlities and sometimes form friendship ties with some of them.Also, volunteering is very beneficial as it helps us to improve our communication skills and allow us to acquire working experience that will be very valuable to us in the future. Another big positive thing about volunteering is that it isn't time consuming it means that you can do the usual stuff like studying and hanging out with friends.In addition to this, volunteering job can be sometimes very good for our physical health as you will be shovelling driveways, saving cats off trees and helping old people with their daily chores.Also, the smile we draw on the face of peple we help and the great difference we make in their lives will certainly give us a great self-satisfaction and happiness .Another thing is that at this difficult time of the covid 19 pandemic, we need to look after the elderly and the vulnerable who are more at risk of catching the virus and maybe dying. So presently we need volunteering more than even although we have these new rules of lockdown , we,fit people,can help by the fit those elderly and vulnerable people by doing their daily shopping and bring medications for them and putting it on their doorsteps.
In conclusion volunteering is very rewarding for both yourself and the person you are helping. So it is really worth considering taking a volunteering job.
