When starting on your path to volunteering you may have many questions, Why should I volunteer? Where do I volunteer? What’s in it for me? These are all great questions to ask yourself and understand before you begin your volunteer endeavor. Not knowing your purpose behind volunteering and your goals can quickly lead to volunteer fatigue and burnout, whereas if you have a plan and goal it can be a very rewarding experience.

Why volunteer? Volunteers play an integral role in the community. Volunteers affect community relations, growth, and overall wellbeing. Volunteering goes beyond helping the population on the military bases in Okinawa, you can help build bridges with our host nation through volunteerism. This will also give insight into different cultures in a meaningful way. 

Where do I volunteer? There are several ways you can find volunteer opportunities in Okinawa, you can join our email list, call us at 645-3749 or 098-970-3749, email at VolunteerNow@Okinawa.USMC-MCCS.org, or set up an appointment with our Volunteer Program Coordinator to identify specific opportunities. 

Why volunteer? What’s in it for me? People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others.  But it's also okay to want some benefits for yourself from volunteering. The best volunteering does involve the desire to serve others, but this does not exclude other motivations, as well. If you are currently a volunteer or are interested in becoming a volunteer, there are many benefits you can receive from volunteering. After all, many programs would not be able to function without YOU!
