How does it happen?  

Somebody says would you like to....?  Or you think maybe I could...?  You pick up a leaflet and make a phone call, or you go online and find a website...? 

Somehow or another YOU can be a VOLUNTEER, offering YOUR enthusiasm, creativity, talents, hopes for making something better than it was, helping a friend, adding an activity to a CV, joining in...  The list is endless, as is what happens to YOU, receiving satisfaction, broadening your mind, meeting people, having your ideas challenged, doing things out of your comfort zone, feeling more worthwhile, empowering yourself and others, gaining confidence, social skills, learning something new every day of your life... 

This is the other list that can go on and on, every day, week, month and year of being a VOLUNTEER
