Why should you become a volunteer?

Be the first

You will be the first to know about UMO's events and discussions. You will be the formal representative from your institution or organisation.

It is great EXPERIENCE

Volunteering gives you real experience without having to find and commit to a paying job and gives you experience doing something that you can't get paid for yet because you don't have the training. You can also get experience in an area you plan to work in.

Treated as a Great Person

Employers are also going to think, "Gee, this person really cares about their society. They took the time to volunteer".

Considered for Scholarships

Sometimes scholarships are based on things like "outstanding community involvement" or "evidence of leadership". Having volunteering as an extra-curricular activity can get you in the running for scholarships even if you're not pulling that 4.0 or that 1100 score.

Find out your interest and choose your career

If you think you want to become, say, a librarian, but you aren't sure, a little light volunteering in a library can open your eyes to the reality of the job. You'll find out if actually working in a library setting is what you thought it would be. If not, well, you can move on and volunteer elsewhere, and maybe save yourself a lot of time going down a path that is not for you.

You Get To See What's Out There

If you volunteer at a homeless shelter, you get to see what being homeless really means. It opens your eyes to something far beyond your own worldview and may change your perspective and your actions. It'll definitely give you the right to voice your experienced opinions when other people are just spouting off!

Meet People

If you volunteer with kids, you get to meet some hilarious kids. If you volunteer with other volunteers, you get to meet people who have similar interests to yours. If you volunteer with a great volunteer supervisor, you get to know somebody who can be a reference for you. You meet some great people when you volunteer who you would never run into otherwise.

It's the Right Thing To Do

Maybe you've been pretty lucky in life and you just want to give back somehow. Volunteering is a good way to do that. You'll feel good and you'll know that you're doing something good, even if it's just something small.

This is your oppurtunity to do something

Get involved! Be the change! Make things happen!
