Volunteers are people who choose to donate their time and effort, without financial gain, by sharing their knowledge, expertise, skills and interests for the benefit and well-being of the community.

Volunteering is not just about helping others; it can also be a way to help you develop as a person. Dedicating time as a volunteer can boost your social and work skills and improve your sense of self-worth while meeting new people, helping the community…and having fun!
