Find Your Project

The most rewarding volunteer experiences are ones that make us feel useful in the time we have to give, doing a job that makes us feel fulfilled, and working for a cause about which we feel passionately. When looking for the right opportunity, ask yourself the following:

1) How much time can I realistically give each week/month/year?

2) Do I want a short (one time to three months) or longer-term commitment (six months to a year or longer)?

3) Do I feel passionately about a particular cause?

4) What kind of skills/talents would I like to share?

5) Do I want to work directly with those in need or would I prefer to support that work (e.g., administrative work)?

6) Do I want to work to change the system (as part of a task force or group)?

7) Do I enjoy fundraising or planning special events?

8) Is there a particular age group with which I would like to work (e.g., young children, teens, adults, women, seniors)?

9) Do I need to find a project I can do from home/office?

Do your homework! Meet with the organization and make your expectations and commitment level very clear.

Check out the 'Volunteer Opportunities' on the website for the various ways you could volunteer your time.
