Did you know that more than 64 million Americans volunteer each year? In fact, collectively we give back an average of more than 3.2 billion hours year – providing agencies and organizations with around $23.2 billion annually in social value.
If volunteering for a cause interests you, social work may be your calling. Social workers influence federal law and help communities and families in need. In addition, a career in social work can open the door to job opportunities in a variety of areas, ranging from education to government positions.
