The relationships you can create while volunteering are endless. You connect to others through volunteering, and if you do it regularly, you can maintain those valuable social networks into the future.

You make connections with the people you are helping, and you cultivate friendships with other volunteers.
Getting involved within your community allows you to see the impact and change with your own eyes.
