United Way

Find the place where your interests and skills intersect with the needs of an organization. Ask what they need and listen to the answer. Offer ideas for ways you could use your skills to help. Decide what kind of time commitment you would like to make, then follow through.

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.

GOAL STATEMENT

I will help the arts council [which group or organization] [when] every Saturday[how much] for an hour a week by [doing what] staffing the gift shop.

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

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
