How volunteers benefit organizations

Volunteers serve in many capacities within organizations by contributing time, energies or talents that help to fulfil the organizations' mission. Volunteers generate enthusiasm and interest and help to create a positive image of the organization in the community. Volunteers extend and augment the work of paid staff. They can focus on individual clients or subject areas and thus bring new insights, energy and time to the work.
