Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. At Healthy Henry County Communities, we value our volunteers and welcome them to help advocate for change, organize events, or participate on different committees. Whether you have a passion for one of our focus areas or a skill that can be used to benefit others, we would love to hear from you.

If you have been considering becoming a volunteer, here are some benefits to keep in mind:

  • Volunteering connects you to others

    One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people and organizations in need.

  • Volunteering is good for your mind and body

    Volunteering provides many benefits to both mental and physical health. It can help with counteracting the effects of stress, anger, anxiety, and depression. When you volunteer, it will make you happy.  By measuring hormones and brain activity, researchers have discovered that being helpful to others delivers immense pleasure.

  • Volunteering can advance your career

    If you’re considering a new career, volunteering can help you get experience in your area of interest and meet people in the field. Even if you’re not planning on changing careers, volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, project planning, task management, and organization.

  • Volunteering brings fun and fulfillment to your life

    Volunteering is a fun and easy way to explore your interests and passions. Doing volunteer work you find meaningful and interesting can be a relaxing, energizing escape from your day-to-day routine of work, school, or family commitments.
