According to WebMd, “Volunteers experience a greater satisfaction with life and life purpose, increased self-confidence and greater sense of identity.” Helping others, sharing your time, mentoring, advocating builds community, fosters relationships and can force you out of your comfort zone. According to University of Minnesota psychologist Mark Snyder, “people who volunteer tend to have higher self-esteem, psychological well-being, and happiness.” Volunteering can help you discover life purpose, learn something new and connect you to others. When you help others, you are in turn helping yourself.
