Volunteering and Your Health

Volunteering makes a difference in others’ lives and can make a difference in yours, too. When we serve others – whether through volunteering our time or donating resources – our brain releases feel-good endorphins that psychologists call the “helper’s high.” This concept has been studied since the 1980s and is associated with better health and increased longevity. The good news is that any act of kindness can positively impact your well-being, no matter how big or small. Looking for more reasons why you should volunteer?

See other benefits below.

  • Improves physical and mental health
  • Provides a sense of purpose
  • Teaches valuable job skills
  • Builds relationships and connects you to others
  • Connects you to your community
  • Increases your empathy and understanding
  • Gets you out of your comfort zone
