Volunteer - Play to your strengths
You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give Winston Churchill
When skills volunteering is matched with community engagement, it can empower people to change the world from the grassroots up and in their own backyard. It nurtures special bonds and strong partnerships at every level.
Skilled volunteering provides the opportunity to apply skills and experience gained in a totally new environment and context. It can be a truly rewarding experience and provide invaluable resources to the local charity heroes in your community. It strengthens personal, as well as professional, missions and ambitions by exploring opportunities and expanding the dimensions and skills horizons in which careers exist.
It also offers the opportunity for strengthening CVs and adding an ethical dimension to your professional life.
At The Goodwill Exchange we never take any volunteer for granted and protect their generosity at all times. All volunteering is on a project basis, with a clear focus and timeline.
The Happiness Effect
Social science researchers at the London School of Economics examined the relationship between volunteering and happiness and found the more people volunteered, the happier they were.
