Serve the other in holy joy, volunteering is an opportunity to give yourself to the needy world in confidence and courage. Volunteering also gives individuals the chance to explore avenues that would not usually be open to them. It enables young people to gain experience, acquire new skills, meet new people, or expand their network of contacts and gain practical experience in the field, in sometimes demanding conditions, and to develop leadership and teamwork skills.
In addition, volunteering has one of the greatest opportunities to work with the marginalized in the society. Often volunteers will witness firsthand the inequalities that exist in society. It can offer the volunteer a new vision of the world and grounded convictions on life.
