Positive benefits to Volunteering

Over the past two decades a growing body of research indicates that volunteering provides individual health and social benefits.

-Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.

-Older volunteers are the most likely to receive greater benefits from volunteering, because volunteering provides them with physical and social activity and a sense of purpose at a time when their social roles are changing.
-Volunteers who devote a “considerable” amount of time to volunteer activities (about 100 hours per year) are most likely to exhibit positive health outcomes.

When we share our time and talents we:

  • Solve Problems
    • Strengthen Communities
    • Improve Lives
    • Connect to Others
    • Transform Our Own Lives
