Benefits: Being a volunteer has lots of benefits. It can bring meaning and purpose to your life, while increasing your self-esteem and wellbeing. Volunteering can also relieve stress, and alleviate symptoms of depression. As well as having a positive impact on your community, volunteering can improve your relationships.
We believe there’s no substitute for volunteering. It helps young people cultivate empathy, respect, resilience and leadership skills – and connect with their wider community.
Above all, we see volunteering as a two-way street. It gives children the opportunity to change other people’s lives… and their own. When we empower children to help others, they ultimately gain as much as they give. Sometimes even more.
That’s why we do what we do at Kids Giving Back.
