VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES FOR 16-25 YEAR OLDS
If you are between the ages of 16-25 and looking for a way to gain work experience you might want to think about
signing up to be a volunteer. Many businesses allow volunteers to help out, to give them the opportunity to see if they
might be interested in having a career in that particular field.
Among those businesses you may want to consider charity work in hospitals, some long term care facilities, grocery
stores, charity groups, and many other establishments as well. This can also allow people to gain new relationships and
earn a good reputation for when they are ready to go out into the working world in the future.
Volunteers are a great help to businesses. For instance, those who work as volunteers in hospitals help patients to have
a more tolerable stay while they are ill. Nursing home patients may enjoy having a volunteer come visit them from time
to time just to keep them company. Volunteers in grocery stores can be helpful by carrying bags out for customers or
helping them locate certain items in the store.
Volunteering your time to help charity groups can also be an enjoyable thing to do. Knowing you are helping those in
need can be a rewarding experience that you can be proud of. Many elderly people who are shut-ins need volunteers to
run occasional errands for them. Having trustworthy people who can go pay their bills or make trips to the store for
them when needed can be a tremendous help.
Another benefit of being a volunteer is how you are perceived by the public eye. Most likely if you do well at job volun-
teering, you will be considered strongly should you ever want a permanent job at that particular business. When business
managers see they can depend on you as a volunteer your reputation as a good worker will be set in stone. It is also a
nice addition to have volunteer work listed on a resume as experience working with others in your community.
