Find Volunteer Opportunities
The nonprofit sector in our community is rich and diverse. There are organizations both on and off campus that fill every niche, including health and human services, arts and humanities, human rights, environmental causes, agriculture, social justice, animal welfare, community building, public policy, and more. Depending on your own values and interests, you may seek a volunteer position with a nonprofit organization that works from a faith-based, political, or specific philosophical perspective. You might consider volunteering with an organization that is working with, or on behalf of, a specific population such as senior citizens, children/youth, individuals with disabilities or chronic illnesses, racial and ethnic minority populations, or the LGBT community.
As you begin to search for volunteer opportunities, you will discover many different and interesting options from which to choose. When deciding where to engage and serve, it will probably be helpful to reflect on your own interests, values, social concerns, or experiences can help you determine what type of agencies to target in your search for volunteer opportunities.
