“Volunteers are not servants. Volunteers are partners working together for improving America’s future.” – Richard Daly
At Chambers of Commerce and other non-profits, we couldn’t do half of what we do without our volunteers. From Event Coordinating to Outreach, volunteers step up to help us carry the load.
Volunteering comes in various forms, from hand on building and clean up opportunities to smaller scale, working registration and reading to schools, local organizations contribute to the quality of life in our communities.
Volunteering can also expand your network, and no we don’t mean online. Those you work with, side by side, can play an important role in your future careers, and these volunteer hours look great on resumes.
From assisting at the local soup kitchen to assembling playground equipment, volunteering also teaches us things. It may teach us a new skill or raise our awareness of other organizations and businesses in the community that serve as resources for others.
Looking for ways to volunteer? Just give these local organizations a call!
