Volunteering is the most fundamental act of citizenship and philanthropy in our society. It is offering time, energy, and skills of one’s own free will. It is an extension of being a good neighbour, as people become involved in the nurturing of others. Volunteers will gain skills, self esteem and knowledge that may change their lives. The student participants of GVRSF will be the beneficiaries of the volunteers’ participation and interaction. The positive and respectful interactions provided by the volunteer may directly influence the future scientific activity and career choices of the student. Volunteering with GVRSF will increase the capacity of the organization to accomplish their goals. GVRSF is a non-profit charitable organization run entirely by volunteers. Each volunteer is welcomed and treated as a valuable and integral member of the GVRSF team.
