Why Volunteer

One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, gain work skills and boost your social skills.

VOLUNTEER FOR KNOX offers a free referral service that matches your interests, skills and experience and availability with local volunteer roles in the City of Knox.
