Volunteering is a very rewarding job.  But does it help in a pathway to paid employment?   ABSOLUTELY.  See the article below from seek.com.au

“The research showed that there is a positive hiring attitude toward volunteering, with 75% of hiring staff agreeing volunteer experience is an advantage in a job interview. This means that hiring managers don’t just consider paid experience to be the only valid route into a job. Your volunteer experience also counts. Volunteering can help develop transferable skills, which hiring managers rank as the highest selection criteria for career change and entry level workers. ”
