Volunteering is a effective way to gain experience in your field of interest and to learn more about yourself and your passions. It builds and strengthens your networks and potential references and also makes it much easier to find jobs. For those who do not have previous paid work experience, it is a great way to improve your resume and highlight transferable skills. The Lunenburg Queens Volunteer Partnership is a great resource to help you get involved with volunteer opportunities in the community. The Volunteer Navigator can provide volunteer options that best fit your skills, interests, and abilities. You can also check out their Facebook page that lists volunteer opportunities, information and more!
