-- Find a project that fits your lifestyle, personality, and interests. Do you prefer working with a large group or working alone? Are you better suited for leading the charge or working behind the scenes? What special skills can you offer? How are you gifted? What are you passionate about? Consider the answers to these questions, and seek work that makes a solid match.
-- Once you have found a project, contact the organizers and ask questions. Before you commit, it is important to know what is expected of you. Make sure you are clear about the time commitment, the work involved, and any required training.
-- Make connections. Community service should be enjoyable. Reach out to other volunteers, learn their stories, and forge relationships. It will engage you with the work more and help you to realize the positive benefits your participation has on the bigger picture.
