Volunteers Make a Difference

Alpha Grove can help professionals find rewarding opportunities to volunteer their skills with the local community. Whether your background is in legal, finance, architecture, marketing, HR, IT, operations, strategy or other areas, there are countless small charities and social enterprises that could benefit from your skills.

Individuals and organisations are helping to make a lasting difference by contributing their time, expertise, and talents through volunteering. We value the contributions of volunteers in our community. Another service of Alpha Grove is to promote, strengthen, and enhance volunteerism.

There are many benefits when you volunteer, including:

  • Meet new and inspiring people with a common interest in making your community better

  • Develop a new skillset, in addition to sharing your current skills

  • Boost your career options

  • Gain motivation and a sense of achievement

  • Discover new interests and hobbies

  • Keep active and alert

  • Meet volunteer hour requirements

There is also a growing body of research exploring the personal health benefits of skills-based volunteering, in addition to the social benefits. Research has found that those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, greater life satisfaction, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.

Anyone Can Volunteer

You can be an adult, a student, or a senior. You can volunteer on your own, with a team of co-workers, with your family or your friends. Volunteering is flexible and adaptable to your needs - whether you are looking for short- or long-term commitments, there are opportunities for you to make a difference to the local community.
