Volunteers

Volunteering has many benefits. It gives people self-confidence and satisfaction, social contact, the ability to use previously established skills or develop new ones, a chance to follow your passion and a possible start to paid employment.

Volunteering is flexible and will fit around your existing committments. The Peel Volunteer Resource Centre have volunteering opportunities that range from 5 minutes per day to 1 hour a week, 1 day per week or once a year – the opportunities are endless!

Have you been thinking of volunteering yourself? Things to consider:

  • What do I want to get out of volunteer work?
  • What type of voluntary work would I like to do?
  • Can someone benefit from my experience?
  • What time do I have available – weekdays or weekends? What about evenings?
  • What interests/hobbies do I have that I would like to engage in more?
  • Is there a career/industry that I can gain knowledge about through volunteering?

The whole world is yours to explore and volunteering can help you figure out how to do so.
