Unless You Are Doing It for the Right Reasons
The job marketing is becoming increasingly competitive, and many young people are looking to volunteer just so they can fluff out their CV. They know that volunteers are always in short supply, and it's a sure way to gain some work related experience. But volunteering can be a wonderful, and fulfilling experience in and of itself. Volunteers shouldn't view this opportunity just as stepping stone towards landing a paid job. They should cherish the occasion to give back to their community, and invest as much as they can in this activity. Otherwise, their whole volunteering experience is wasted.
