Download a printable Volunteering pdf to locate the intersection of your interests and skills with the needs of an organization for a cause that is meaningful to you.

There are many opportunities available, many more than the partial list above which is intended to inspire thinking. They will vary depending on your community, so explore the possibilities!

Almost every organization has a need for financial support and fundraising. Maybe they need help maintaining a webpage, writing a newsletter, or help with landscaping. There may be people who need transportation to doctor’s appointments. You could spend time at a nursing home reading to someone or playing a game they enjoy. You could join a political campaign, or work in a hospital gift store.

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.

I write about goal setting, time management, and other skills for personal development, happiness, and a productive life. My fascination with phonics and the pursuit of literacy is shared at www.phonicspow.com. I enjoy reading books and watching movies based on the screen and page method.
