Finding an Opportunity

Here are some simple ways you can find the volunteer job that benefits you as much as the organization you serve:

Ask Around Campus: Many schools have service-learning offices or volunteer centers set up specifically to help students connect with local volunteer opportunities. To learn more, check your school’s Web site or stop by the campus activities or student-life office.
Use Web-Based Search Tools: Several Web sites list volunteer opportunities online.
Approach a Specific Organization of Interest: The elementary school two blocks from your residence hall could undoubtedly use your help with kids who are somehow struggling. Call the school’s main office or stop by to ask about the possibilities.
