Volunteers experience a number of factors that contribute to their mental well-being. The authors of the research discovered 3 interesting facts;
1. People that help others experience a “warm glow”of satisfaction.
2. Volunteering helps people stay connected to one another, especially for older adults in retirement.
3. Volunteering builds opportunities and skills –especially in younger adults. These include opportunities for leadership,networking, and other professional skills in the 16-24 and 55-74 age brackets.
