Volunteering: The Heart of America
"Volunteers have impacted humanity and economic development on a global scale. Organizations such as the Peace Corps, Volunteer Match, AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity and United We Serve, United Way, Doctors without Borders, Boys&Girls Clubs, and Volunteers4Humanity provide a platform for volunteers to expand their outreach even more. If you are passionate about helping others and advocating for a cause, a career in social work may be the perfect fit for you. Social workers aren’t just found in clinics and hospitals. They have a direct impact on communities, families, social policies and federal laws. People in social work have many career options available to them and can, in fact, be employed by volunteer-based organizations.
