Tips for Volunteers:
Some helpful tips for volunteers are:
- Know what you want to get out of volunteering. You can volunteer in order to make a contribution, advance your career, meet new friends, gain recognition or simply enjoy the personal satisfaction that comes from helping others.
- Check the time it takes to do a particular volunteer job. How does the time commitment fit your schedule and lifestyle?
- Think about your skills, interests and life experiences and how they could be useful in a volunteer setting.
- Be open and honest about your desire for meaningful and satisfying work and the need to have acceptance and respect of the staff.
- Be willing to give and take honest feedback in your volunteer job. When necessary, be an advocate for change.
- Respect confidentiality related to your volunteer placement.
Most important of all, bring your heart and your sense of humor to your volunteer service, along with the enthusiastic spirit. That, in itself, is a priceless gift.
