5 reasons why millennials need to give volunteering a chance

Published by Pradeep on


Millennials are one of the most vibrant, heavily updated, advance generations and change is what drives most of us. Despite the immense potential, a lot of youngsters give in to procrastination and other activities that aren’t productive. There is so much a young individual can gain from volunteering, apart from driving change for social good.

To be a responsible citizen
The blame game or waiting for others to do what’s required needs to stop. If an issue in your community can be handled by you – you shouldn’t waste time before taking responsibility for it. Every kind of contribution to society counts.

To learn something new
Volunteering is your chance to exercise your communication and writing skills, teamwork, adaptability, problem solving, time management, social awareness through exposures from volunteering. It’s indeed a great platform to discover yourself.

For Personal Growth
Participating in sustainable living, fighting for peace and justice, lending a helping hand to the needy, and fighting poverty are all experiences that will teach you about life. From learning how to work in a group, overcoming the laid-back attitude to being selfless there are a range of personality changes you will undergo.

To make new friends
To make friends and expand one’s network is not something that comes naturally to everyone. Joining an NGO can also be a good platform to give back to the society and make more friends. Different NGOs work for different causes, so meeting like-minded people is certain.

Because it’s now or never!
Channeling your energy in the right direction is what a lot of people miss out on. Charles Dickens, the famous English writer and social critic, once rightfully said, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” Therefore, you shouldn’t wait for the right moment to come or doubt yourself. Instead, listen to your heart and do what you think is right.
