You may say "I have a busy life, it can be hard to find time to volunteer". However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. It can also enable you to affirm or explore your own passions. A bonus is that it might even have a professional payoff thanks to increased skills or opportunities through your new network.
Unlike paid work, the volunteering are more likely to be linked to your passions and interests.
