At times in my life, I experienced hunger, thirst, lack of clothing and being shunned for not having. I went to school many days without shoes on my feet. When I got home from school, I didn’t know if I would have food to eat. I grew up with oil lamps and candles to allow me to do my homework. We didn’t have electricity or running water or a bed to sleep in, but I was able to rise above it all.

DO GOOD Week: Administrative Opportunities

April 15, 2018    in
If you are an organized individual who is ready to jump right into any task at hand, taking on an administrative/clerical volunteer position may be for you!

There is not a nonprofit office in the world that couldn’t use another set of hands on any given day - there is ALWAYS something to be done in the world of philanthropy.

If you can spare the time to conduct research, collect data, or even just answer the phone for a few hours a day, there will always be a nonprofit that could use your help.

If you are the type of person who loves to help an event come to life by assisting in the planning process, or wants to be sure an event runs smoothly by being present on the day-of an event, there are volunteer opportunities for you in the Charlotte area.

DO GOOD Week: Hands-On Opportunities

If you love being outdoors, getting your hands dirty, or serving others, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities for you! Grab your tools and get out in your community, there is never a lack of need for hands-on people like you.

Volunteering looks different to everyone and every organization, but if you like to get physical with your volunteering efforts, bring your talents out to do GOOD for the nonprofits in your area that need a little muscle power. There are plenty of opportunities working in gardens, helping with repairs, serving meals and more.

DO GOOD Week: Digital/Tech Opportunities

April 15, 2018    in
Volunteering is not all serving meals and building homes (though those are very generous activities that we will never advise against) but with technology forever evolving, all aspects of our community are following suit which means that nonprofit organizations are finding a need to keep up just as much as any other business.

DO GOOD Week: Mentoring Opportunities

April 15, 2018    in
If you are someone who truly believes you can make an impact on someone’s life simply by lending a little guidance, you may want to consider becoming a mentor.

There will always be a need for mentors in the community, whether it is for a child who needs tutoring, or an adult who needs support. If you desire to help others directly, mentoring someone in need is a valuable use of your time.

April 15, 2018    in
