Get Active – Become a Volunteer
Volunteers offer their skills, time and knowledge to the society. The truth is that if you decide to go through the volunteering experience, you get a lot more back.
While you volunteer you’re constantly getting rewarded, mentally and physically. You gain experience on the field and discover more professional possibilities. You meet new people who share the same ethics and principles with you. At the end you become more responsible, with stronger self-esteem. How can you start?
