What kind of Volunteer Experience do I want?

Playing chessWhen you consider getting involved in your community, it’s good to think about what kind of experience you are hoping to have. Once you know, you will find it easy to create your individual profile. Your search for opportunities will then be better directed, and organizations searching profiles will find you faster.

Consider the following:

I’m a student or a young adult, and I want to volunteer:

  • in an area related to a career path I am considering
  • to gain general workplace-related experience
  • to gain leadership skills
  • in an area related to something about which I am passionate
  • with my peers or family, or on my own
  • once in a while, episodically
  • weekly, bi-weekly or monthly
  • only to earn enough hours to meet my community service requirements
  • virtually – work from home

I am available to volunteer:

  • after school
  • in the evenings
  • on the weekends
  • over the summer
  • during March break
  • on an ‘on call’ basis

I have transportation to get to volunteer opportunities.

I am proficient in more than one language – what languages, what level of proficiency?

I’m an adult or a senior, and I want to volunteer:

  • for fun (I’ve worked all my life, now I just want to enjoy whatever I pursue)
  • for company
  • to keep busy and active
  • in areas that speak to a passion or passions that I have
  • with family or in a group
  • on a team, and/or individually
  • to share/improve skills and talents learned over the years – what are those skills/talents?
  • virtually – work from home

I am available to volunteer:

  • seasonally (I go south in the winter, or to the cottage all summer)
  • on a regular basis
  • episodically/’on call’ basis

I have transportation to get to volunteer opportunities

I am proficient in more than one language – what languages, what level of proficiency?
