Write Your Own Map: Defining Your Passions in Volunteering

If you now feel as if making time for volunteering or finding a place of balance in your life where you can contribute to your community is important, where do you begin? First, it might help to come up with some ideas for the broad types of causes that you feel are important to you. Is it the well-being of kids and teens? Homelessness? Helping alcoholics or victims of domestic violence? Manning a suicide hotline? Helping your church or place of worship? Helping the nation's schools? Wildlife preservation?

Next try plugging in “Volunteering” in a search engine, or read your local paper, which often has free ads for local charities and organizations needing help.
