Volunteering or sitting on a non-profit board is a great way to make a difference in your community. It is also an excellent way to build meaningful relationships with people in and out of your workplace. Fundraisers or large projects especially provide opportunity to build strong relationship because everyone is working toward a common goal.
Oftentimes your workplace will provide volunteer opportunities. However, if your interests are focused on another cause us websites such as Volunteer Match that let you explore volunteer opportunities by location and interest. Two great national organizations are Dress for Success and Young Survival Coalition.
