THE BENEFITS OF SERVICES
Volunteering is a great way to relate your academic pursuits to real life. Take what you learn in the classroom and apply it in the real world. Don't know what you want to be when you grow up? Volunteering is a great way to get a sense of your career options, get experience, and gain insight into your career goals. Whether you volunteer for fun or for experience, you'll acquire valuable skills and knowledge, and volunteering looks great on your resume!
Students who volunteer become more civically minded and socially responsible. They are better able to recognize matters of public concern and take action to address these issues. Likewise, volunteering allows you to network with local agency representatives; you will acquire professional references as well as greatly increase your chance of a job offer.
