Expand Your Social Network

Volunteering can improve your personal relationships and help you develop new relationships. One of the best ways to make new friends and strengthen relationships with old ones is to commit to a shared activity together. Volunteering in a new area is a great way to meet new people. Volunteering can broaden your support network, strengthen your ties to your local community and afford opportunities for you to work alongside people with common interests.
