Remember that everyone can volunteer – whatever your skills, experience or background there should be an opportunity suitable for you. Think about what it is you have to offer and what you want to gain from volunteering. You may be able to offer enthusiasm, experience or expertise and you may want to learn new skills, practice already acquired skills, fulfil a sense of enjoyment and fun or just contribute to a worthwhile cause. Work out roughly how much time you have to give, and when you are available to give it during a week or a month. Ask questions as you go through the process of applying for an opportunity.
There are all different types of volunteering, some people volunteer abroad, live in volunteering, virtual volunteering etc. Remember, volunteering is an excellent way to improve your employability as well as all the other benefits that go hand-in-hand with it.
