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
