Volunteering has a long and proud history in America. Our roots in service extend all the way back to the first colonies, when volunteers provided for others in times of strife to Benjamin Franklin beginning the first volunteer firefighting company in 1736. From the very beginning of our nation, in wartime, times of tragedy and times of need, Americans have banded together to help each other. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve human quality of life.
