We know that volunteers bring much-needed assistance to the good causes in our communities. But oftentimes, we forget of how volunteering can also fulfill us individually, professionally, and physically.
For example, did you know that 9 in 10 adults who volunteered in the past 12 months note an improved mood and increased self-esteem? Most volunteers also report having greater control over their health and well-being.
Surprised? Neither are we.
Last month, we announced our partnership with Do Good. Live Well. on The Doing Good is Good for You Study. The study revealed 75 percent of U.S. adults feel physically healthier by volunteering, and a stronger connection to their employers among other health benefits connected to volunteering.
