Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, meet new people, and learn new skills. However, there are some myths about volunteering that prevent people from taking advantage of all the benefits it has to offer. In this blog, we will dispel these myths and show you why volunteering is a great opportunity for everyone.
- You have to be passionate about a cause
You’ll never know until you start! Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others? Then you are the perfect person for the job. You can find opportunities that fit any skill or interest.
- There is no time to volunteer
Yes, you may be an extremely busy person, but the truth is, you don’t have to dedicate a lot of time to volunteering. There are plenty of opportunities that only require a few hours each month. If you’re short on time, there are also online options that allow you to make a difference from anywhere in the world. Don’t worry about volunteering for hours on end.
- You can’t volunteer online
Hello? Virtual volunteering is now a very common way to volunteer since the pandemic. And guess what? HOPCP’s very own digital marketing program is online! Our volunteers learned so much valuable information and of course, had fun by volunteering online.
- You can only volunteer if you are a student
False! As long as you want to use your time to help out others, you can never be too young or too old to volunteer. Just find the right volunteer place for you.
Go ahead and help those in need. Start your volunteer journey today.
