"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know. The only ones among you who will be truly happy will be those who have sought and found how to serve."
—Albert Schweitzer, Winner, of the Nobel Peace Prize, 1952

But perhaps the 1st and biggest benefit people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and making a difference in their community. The intangible benefits alone - such as pride, satisfaction and accomplishment - are worthwhile reasons to serve.
