    I want to go away for a Bachelors in Social Work which is very competitive so what can I volunteer for to help my application? I won't be applying for another 3 years.

    - I am thinking maybe volunteer at a Family Support Worker place.

    - Interm as an Addictions Counsellor. (Going away for Addictions Counselling first)

    - Big Brother / Big Sister

    My Marks in Highschool are not competitive enough for University so I can apply through Mature Status, but to increase my chances, I plan to get an Addictions Counselling Associates Degree with the highest marks that I can, volunteer, and work a year as an Addictions counsellor after school.

    Find a cause that tugs on your heart strings and makes you want to affect positive change.

    Connecting yourself to something that you personally deem a worthy cause will make your volunteering a very positive, possibly life-changing experience.

    Volunteering for its own sake will do you no good.
