For this paper I took a look at possible volunteer opportunities in my local community. I gave examples of what opportunities were available and how to find information on how to become a volunteer. I choose to use google as my research criterion and found a very resourceful website with the information I needed. As you read my paper you will find information about being a volunteer, what benefits it has, and what opportunities are available. Below I listed some great information about becoming a volunteer.
Become a Volunteer
As a volunteer, you can....
•Volunteer on your own, with your family or with a group.
•Volunteer your time, skills, services and talents. Opportunities are available with children, teens, adults, individuals with special needs and seniors.
•Volunteer your expertise and experience on a community board. Share your time as an instructor. Design a web page, troubleshoot computer problems, build a bookcase or serve as a mentor.
•Volunteer by coordinating an event, project or publication.
•Volunteer by making an in-kind donation (new or used). Our partner agencies need everything from computers (hardware and software), office equipment and supplies, household goods to clothing and canned goods. There are so many ways an individual can volunteer these days. Finding one that best suits you is important. You want to be comfortable while volunteering and know your gaining a great deal of knowledge to help improve your education.
What was your searching criterion?
When researching for information on volunteer opportunities in my local area I choose to go online. My search criterion to start was to google local opportunities in my home town of Fond du Lac, WI. I was able to find a website called Volunteer Center of Fond Du Lac County, Inc https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl http://www.fdlvolunteer.com/HOC__Volunteer_Opportunity_Search_Page?p=vct
