benefits of volunteering
Volunteering is more than just lending a hand. It's an opportunity to give back to the community you feel most passionate about. Volunteering fosters relationships with people from around the world that share similar interests. It's the perfect opportunity to help the coffee industry flourish. And not to mention, you can earn a free 3-day Expo Volunteer badge in exchange.
