It's important not only for your resume and college applications, but for your personal growth as well as community involvement. Consider this: "Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills." Volunteering can also boost self-confidence, combat depression, and helps you to stay physically healthy.
