There are many ways to help others based on your availability, interest and skills. Robert Rosenthal, director of communications at VolunteerMatch, suggests asking yourself the following four questions to figure out the best volunteer opportunity for you:
- What kind of work do you want to do?
- What is your availability?
- Is there a specific cause you care about?
- Do you want to volunteer alone or with a group of friends and family?
