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.
