Volunteering is an awesome way to meet people, strengthen your ties with the community, learn humility and gain invaluable knowledge. It is also a great way to build your experience when you are young (and lack job experience) or you just want to volunteer your time to worth while causes! Here a few places to consider when you want to volunteer:

Retirement Homes

Spending time with the elderly can give you insight to people who lived during a different time. You can share what you know or like to do: play guitar, do crafts, or even bake! It’s an amazing experience especially if you are young! Additionally take a proactive approach: see if you can create any workshops or events that the residents can be a part of.

Art related Events/Organisations

Art is essential in every local community. It represents history, customs and people. Being a volunteer at an art event or at an organization can give you a deeper prospective of your community.

Church-based Initiatives

Even if you don’t belong to a church, they often have many initiatives in the community including fundraisers, shelter programs, or help for the disadvantaged–the list goes on. Even you aren’t the religious type finding more about how you can help out can open a door to endless possibilities in your career and your life!
