Volunteers have the unique opportunity to be involved in a project from the grassroots level and actually become a member of the local community. Volunteers often create long-term friendships within the community and take home with them new ways of living, often changing careers or starting a new hobby such as wildlife photography, canoeing, scuba diving, first aid or sustainable living. Volunteering could change your future.
