The GSR mission was supported last year by an average of 3,000 volunteer hours.
That is a value of almost $84,000!
Multiple case studies have reported that volunteering has also been shown to protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it's true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you'll experience, volunteering doesn't have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day.
Volunteers at Global can be found:
