Get Involved!

Often times we are either too busy or not sure how to help. Check out a few tips & FAQs to help jumpstart your volunteering!

How do I start?

Identify your passion. Do you enjoy fitness, art, mentoring, or website building?
Whatever your skillset or passion is, the first step is figuring out what you enjoy enough to give it out for FREE. Ultimately sharing your passion with others and then it no longer feels like work.

Where do I find volunteer opportunities?

Search. Check out volunteermatch.org; this site is a great resource to help you narrow your search via the cause and/or your skillset.
If you are local to Jacksonville, Florida, connect with me about volunteer opportunities and/or visit our Facebook group - Volunteer Jax.

Why should I volunteer?

Make an impact. One of the greatest benefits of volunteering is that you get to make a difference in people’s lives. It creates an environment that makes you realize that there is something bigger than yourself and your desires. You will experience a different part of yourself and possibly discover new skills.
Check out my reasons explaining why you should volunteer listed below.

What if I don't have time?

Sponsorship. If you are too busy, no worries! Financial support is another option.
When selecting a non-profit, you can request a designation to apply to the area or program you would like your donation to support.

When should I volunteer?

Now. Any time of the year is a great time to get involved, however many non-profit organizations receive the most volunteers during the holidays (Nov - Dec). Many people feel the holiday spirit and the need to volunteer.
I recommend reaching out to the organization to determine when they have fewer volunteers.

Who should join me?

Invite as many people as possible. Group activities promote opportunities to enhance teamwork skills and communication. While volunteering is serious work, it is also a lot of fun. This could be a great group activity for you and your friends and/or family members!
