Get Skills Needed for Employment

You might wonder how you can get a job without any experience.

Volunteering is a great way to gain skills and make professional connections (networking) that will give you a higher chance of getting a paid work placement. Volunteering is also a great way to give back to the community and feel a sense of accomplishment, and purpose, and like you are making a positive difference in the world.

Try to volunteer at places that will give you valuable experience related to your future career goals. If you are still undecided on what career you want, volunteering is a great way to explore your own interests and figure out what you like and don’t like in the world of work!

Check out local volunteer opportunities near you (opens in new window).
