Volunteering in the summer is a great opportunity to learn and gain experience in a field of your interest, as well as supporting your local or international community. Being a volunteer is a good option for those who can afford not to have a summer job, or who can pair summer employment with a few hours of volunteering per week. Time commitments for volunteering tend to vary but can often be balanced with other duties. Volunteering is great for building a resume or portfolio as well as making contacts and references in a variety of fields.
