The evidence is in, and it’s probably not surprising: Volunteering is good for you.

  • 2020 Harvard University study found that older adults who volunteer 100 or more hours per year reduce their chance of early death and better levels of optimism and purpose in life than those who did not volunteer as much or at all.

  • Another study even found that volunteers are, on average, as healthy as people five years younger than they are.

And those are just a few pieces of the growing body of research about the positive benefits of giving back. Here’s another: Volunteering can help your career, too.
