In recent years, educational Institutions have sought to encourage civic behavior among young citizens and volunteering has emerged as the preferred avenue for this process. Giving preference to learning beyond the four walls and ranks, schools and colleges have started adopting volunteer programs to engage their students in community service programmes.
Student volunteering is essential to perpetuate an engaged and inclusive civic society and is considered as an altruistic endeavor.
A volunteering programme has several benefits and empowers your Institution in nurturing informed citizens of tomorrow.
Kindness and sharing needs to be experienced. Volunteering works at a cognitive and effective level and fosters pro-social and inclusive behaviour and goes a long way in enhancing gratitude in a world where everything is taken for granted.
Students who participate in community service demonstrate an increased sense of efficiency. They have a better understanding of their competencies which leads to self-confidence and responsibility that extends to their academic and career pursuits.
Increased involvement in their communities makes better citizens of students and strengthens their ties with the people they serve.
Facing challenges and tough issues as a volunteer develops problem-solving and leadership skills.
Students become more eligible to their potential employers because they develop valuable skills like problem solving, ability to follow instructions, networking and teamwork.
Volunteering enables students to make important connections that may lead to letters of recommendation besides scholarships offered by community service organizations.
Well - being
Volunteering improves mental and physical well-being since students learn to cope up with stress.
