Volunteering is vital to a just society, fostering civic responsibility, participation and interaction. It strengthens communities by increasing their capacity to identify and respond to human needs. Volunteering creates ownership of the community, its assets and needs among the people who live and work there. Volunteering creates relationships at the institutional and personal level that are a vital part of the fabric of the community.
