Volunteers enable many charitable nonprofits to get their work done. A recent survey by the US Department of Labor shows that about one-quarter of Americans, or 25 percent, take the time to volunteer

The Independent Sector, an organization that gathers tons of statistics about charitable activities, places an Estimated National Value of Each Volunteer Hour every year. That value stands, as of 2017, at $24.69 an hour on average.

Donating one’s time and energy can have a positive effect on health. Volunteering can also be a great way to gain experience for recent graduates or for experienced professionals planning on a career shift. Sometimes volunteering helps define educational goals and volunteers go on to law or graduate school.

At Earth Law Center (ELC), volunteers contribute in many ways. Some help research & write legal documents to marketing communications, others focus on improving the user experience of our website and managing ELC’s digital marketing and paid search projects. Like most nonprofits, all of ELC’s board members are also volunteers.
