For some people, tradition methods of volunteering do not have much appeal. For instance, a person willing to volunteer may not want to spend their time serving the homeless in a soup kitchen or counseling people. There are however many ways to incorporate your interests into volunteering opportunities. Indeed, volunteering doesn’t have to be a chore any more than going to work has to be a chore. If you do hat you love then you never have to do a day of a work in your life. Here are a couple of great opportunities you may not have considered for volunteering.
1.) Are you an environmentalist? I don’t mean professionally, but if you feel a responsibility to help the environment and keep the earth clean then there are volunteering opportunities for you. Those who strive to help the environment can organize local recycling drives where cans, paper, cardboard, and other recyclables can be collected and brought to the proper facility. In addition, environmental volunteering could consist of cleaning up the grounds of local parks and schools. Once you take on the responsibility to lead these efforts, you may be surprised at the number of like minded individuals willing to join you.
2.) Interested in your local business environment? Your local Chamber of Commerce especially would love to have your help. The local business community may be a tourists attraction or perhaps it’s known for the manufacture of cars or for growing some of the best fruit in the country. Whatever it is your local area does well, there are things you can do to help. Many times this consists of stuffing mailers that go out to potential visitors to your town. There are also commercials that can be made, internet advertising to be done as well as posting signs for local events which could make your town money.
