Identify Your Goals and Needs Before You Volunteer

Whether you’re just starting your volunteering or are already a chapter senior volunteer exploring options within the national organization, you use the same decision-making process. You gain the most from your volunteer efforts if you give careful thought to the why, what, and how of your involvement. Manage your volunteerism by taking time prior to selecting or accepting a leadership or committee position or proposing a project to reflect and assess what specific learning activities you want to gain. Only when you are focused about your present professional status and future direction is it practical to review existing volunteer options and determine which ones interest you.

Decide what you like or would like to learn and volunteer. It’s not the hours or the position. It’s the learning and exposure that provide opportunities.

—Harriet Cohen, president, Training Solutions, Agoura, CA
