Volunteerism has been proven to develop more innovative and world-positive leaders. Becoming engrossed in personally meaningful volunteer work has been proven to expand skill sets (such as leadership, communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills), and foster new perspective on old problems. Volunteerism and the sense of meaning it generates can also have a positive effect on mental and physical health. Volunteering fosters real human connections and a belief that an individual can make a visible, meaningful difference. It leads to greater self-esteem and gives volunteers an enormous opportunity to express their full identity and values. Volunteering is much deeper, much more fulfilling and much more important in contributing to a healthy and vibrant community than money can ever measure.
