New to volunteering

Do you want to spend some time doing things you enjoy, meeting interesting people, getting involved in your community and maybe even gaining some new skills along the way?

Sounds like you're interested in volunteering!

Volunteering offers lots of different things for different people. Some people volunteer to give back to the community or to lend a helping hand. Others are more interested in ways to learn new skills or have new experiences.

Some of us volunteer regularly over a long period of time, while others might work on a short-term project or get involved in activities when they can (even if it's once a year). In a nutshell, it takes all sorts of people from all walks of life to make the volunteering world go around.
