Want to improve your health?

Research from CNCS shows that people who volunteer are physically and mentally healthier than people who don’t. That’s quite a statement, isn’t it? They found that volunteers who donated at least two hours per week–or 100 hours per year–had the greatest health benefits. Volunteers have less depression, heart disease and overall better physical health. Other benefits are: being happier, having higher self-esteem, and having a sense of control over their life.

If you’re unemployed, volunteering will give you what you need right now, while you assist others in greater need. Be a part of the 61 million Americans who volunteer every year. Volunteers solve problems, change lives, strengthen communities, and change their own lives in the process. As you volunteer, you may find networking opportunities that lead to employment.

Not sure where to start? Google “Volunteer Opportunities” and “Internships”, see the many sites across the country looking for people like you. Volunteer today, it’s good for you!
