Student Volunteer Week | Why volunteer with older people?
Volunteering with Abbeyfield offers a range of benefits alongside that feel good factor we all experience when we give our time.
Give back to your local community whilst gaining experience...
Most people choose to volunteer to help others, and the same goes for student volunteers. However, volunteering doesn’t just provide a unique opportunity for you to make a difference to their local community by giving their time. It also gives you chance to develop skills that you can use later in life and throughout your chosen career.
For some, volunteering during college, school or university can be a fast track to employment, an opportunity to upskill or try something new and develop new skills. Volunteering can help you decide which career path is the one for you due to the huge variety of opportunities now available, in a range of different settings.
It’s really rewarding knowing that you’re not only gaining valuable life skills, but also giving back to the local community. – Business student at Cambridge Regional College
