Tips for Starting Your Volunteer Search
  • Pick causes that interest you  - Think about the causes you are passionate about or charitable organizations you support. Contact those organizations to find out about their volunteer needs.
  • Be willing to learn - Some people volunteer in order to develop their expertise in new areas. Think about what skills you would like to use or develop when you volunteer.
  • Decide how much time you can give - Think about whether you want a short-term or ongoing volunteer assignment, and when you are available. You don’t want to overextend yourself or neglect your other commitments.
  • Volunteer as a family - Volunteering with your family can emphasize the importance of giving back to the community.
