If in the process of meeting your personal and professional goals, you are also serving as an effective volunteer, helping to meet the goals of your particular volunteer project or role, and/or helping to move an organization's mission forward, it's a win-win situation.
Volunteers play a vital role in sustaining the board and chapter leadership roles, providing more than 100,000 hours of combined service each year. While you must be an active member, opportunities are available across the chapter for a variety of short- and long-term projects.
Personal and professional benefits
With that in mind, here are some of the personal and professional benefits one can gain from volunteering:
Regardless of your age or career level, volunteering will introduce you to new professional paths. Volunteering can be an excellent way to learn more about a particular role or sector and hoping to gain exposure into new workplaces or office cultures.
Never underestimate the power of networking; volunteering offers the opportunity to cross paths—as well as, in many cases, quickly bond—with people from across your community, including many with whom you may otherwise not have had contact.
