Volunteering doesn’t need to be overwhelming, scary or difficult. You just need to start. Answer these four questions and you'll be ready to go.
1. Who would you like to help?
There are hundreds of nonprofits in Charlotte helping a variety of people and causes. First, decide “who” you'd like to help. You can focus on kids, animals, the environment, seniors, the military, or any group or cause that’s meaningful to you. Pick the “who” first and that will help narrow your search.
2. How much time do you have?
Can you spare an hour a week, or an hour a year? Think about the time commitment you’d like to make, but remember you can start small and grow your commitment from there.
3. Do you want to volunteer with a friend or on your own?
