  When it comes to benefits of volunteering, a lot of people think that’s it’s all about the warm andfuzzyfeeling you feel after helping someone. As it turns out, that’s far from the only benefit. What a lot of people don’t realize is that it is not just about soup kitchens, the peace corps and doctors against borders. Charity work requires a wide variety of people, doing a wide variety of things for everything to work. Because of this you can volunteer as almost anything, which means there are some surprising benefits to be had. For example, volunteering….

  谈起志愿者的好处,很多人认为做志愿者的好处就是帮助别人过后的那种说不出来的温暖感觉。事实上,这只是其中的一个好处而已。很多人没有意识到,志愿者不仅仅是在施粥所工作、或参与和平队或当边境医生。慈善事业需要各种各样的人,做各种各样的事情。因此你可以志愿做任何事情,也就是说,还有很多令人惊叹的益处呢。例如,志愿服务……

  1. Teaches You New Skills

  会教给你新的技能

  From helping making websites, to teaching immigrant kids your native language, to arranging events for charity. Volunteering can really be almost anything. That means that when you get involved in charity work, a lot of the time you will face challenges just as you would in a new job. And through overcoming these you learn and start to master completely new skills.

  从帮忙建网站、教移民孩子学习你的母语,到为慈善事业安排活动,志愿活动可以说是无所不包。当你参与志愿工作时,很多时候你都会面临一些挑战,就像是参与了新的工作一样。通过克服这些困难,你可以学着开始全面掌握新的技能。

  2. Helps You Stay Active

  帮助你保持活跃

  Sometimes when you need to do something the most, is when you feel the least like doing anything. This is where volunteering can help out. It’s a lot more difficult to blow off volunteering than a casual appointment with a friend. So when you feel like shit, and you don’t really want to, but really need to stay active, volunteering is your friend.

  有时,当你什么也不想做的时候,就是你最需要做事情的时候。这时志愿活动就能帮上忙。志愿活动不像随便约朋友那样容易推掉。所以当你感觉很差什么也不想做,但却想保持活跃时,那你该去志愿服务了。

  3. Fills Empty Spaces On Your Resumé

  为你的简历增添内容

  If your job search seems to be taking longer than you had expected, you might want to consider volunteering. It’s a way to prove that you’ve not just been sitting on your ass the whole time but you’ve been actively taking steps that can help you better your situation.

  如果你找工作的时间比你预想的要长,你可能会考虑志愿活动。这种方式可以证明,你不总是坐着不动,你也积极地采取行动,帮助自己改善状况。

  4. Can Lead To Work

  可以帮你工作

  I’ve seen people go into volunteering with no expectations, and further down the road, ending up working for a non-profit as a coordinator. Of course this line of work is not for everyone, but thankfully actually volunteering will give you a good idea of whether or not it’s a viable career path for you.

  我遇见一些人,参加志愿工作时并没有抱任何期望,但在工作的过程中,最后成为非营利组织的协调人。当然,这种工作并不是每个人都适合,但是幸运的是,志愿工作会让你清楚这对你而言是不是可行的职业路径。

  5. Can Be Therapeutic

  可以有治疗作用

  Depending on what you choose to do, volunteer work can have atremendoustherapeuticeffect. There are many options that can be tremendously giving. One of my close personal friends has completely transformed after she started working with disabled kids. Volunteering helps you look outside yourself and your problems, allowing you to see the world and other people from a whole differentperspective, which in turn can make you grateful for what you already have and see your own personal value.

取决于你选择做什么志愿工作,有一些可以有非常好的治疗效果。很多志愿工作都能给你带来很大的帮助。我有一位非常亲密的朋友,她在开始为残疾人孩子工作后,完全变成了另外一个人。志愿工作能帮你从自己和自己的问题中跳出来,允许你以一个全新的不同视角去看世界和他人,这反过来让你对自己已有的东西心存感激,并看到自己的个人价值。
