Three Benefits of Volunteering

What is the point of sacrificing your time for others?

Here is a short piece on the benefits to you and for the community.

You can challenge yourself

Many of us are stuck in our career paths. Never veering out to see what exists on the other side of the road. Volunteering with VolunteerCorps gives you an opportunity to veer into the field of education in Nigeria. You see what young Nigerians go through in order to get an education. You contribute your quota to improve their lives.

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” — Elizabeth Andrew

You can share your Passion

Volunteering gives you that opportunity to express an innate skill or passion that you may not share in your field of work. As a volunteer, passion is the sole reason that drives you. While sharing your skill, you also benefit: you learn more about the skill, about yourself and others. VolunteerCorps is a leading charity organisation that needs passionate volunteers to impact young Nigerians.

“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” — Kofi Annan

It is service to the nation

Imagine how better Nigeria would be today if every Nigerian donated one hour a day in voluntary work? It is not so difficult: everyone picks a field of interest or passion and give just one hour every day doing just that. We will have a better country with a better volunteer culture. It will be easier for people to help one another. See your volunteering as a service to the nation. Volunteering is a block in the foundation of the future Nigeria that you hope for. Serve others and serve your nation!
