Title of Experience: President, Volunteer YA!

Collaborating with community members by working towards a common goal for a greater benefit enables us to improve essential skills, such as social awareness, relationship development, communication, respect and compassion. The value of volunteering is numerous, ranging from immediate short-term benefits, such as immediate relief; to long-term benefits, such as empowerment, prevention and termination of harm and oppression. It is salient to encourage everyone to volunteer, as it is a splendid avenue, especially for young adults, to learn more about themselves, other people, and the world.
