2.) Consider your special talents and look for a volunteer opportunity which can utilize them. Have you managed projects? Do you enjoy meeting strangers?
3.) Or if you are tired of doing the same old thing, find a volunteer opportunity where you have a chance to develop new skills.
4.) Think outside the box! There are probably community groups looking for volunteers you haven’t even thought of.
5.) When you find an organization, check it out by requesting an interview to make sure it matches your interest and skills.
6.) Find the volunteer activity that fits your schedule. Is it seasonal so you can still winter in Arizona? Is it a short term or long term commitment?
7.) Start by volunteering with friends. It can help make the transition into a new volunteer position more comfortable.
8.) Don’t wait to be asked. Find a place to volunteer and go for it!
