How to Take Part in a Global Volunteer Phenomenon

April showers bring… a time to do good in the world! April is celebrated as Global Volunteer Month. That means people from around the world are using this month as a reminder to begin volunteering or to take their volunteer efforts to the next level. Whether you’re just getting started or a seasoned volunteer advocate, read on for ways that you can celebrate Global Volunteer Month and inspire others to join in to make our world a better place.

 

Find Your Passions

Volunteering can always be rewarding, but you’ll find it even more fulfilling if you commit your time to something you’re truly passionate about. Take the time to research organizations that are helping make a difference for causes near to your heart. 

If you don’t have an organization you feel passionate about, have no fear! Try out a few different organizations by dipping your toe into volunteering. Just because you volunteer once doesn’t mean you’re locked in for life. Volunteering for various organizations and causes will help you truly find your passion.

 

Take it to the Next Level

If you’ve been regularly volunteering but have yet to lead an effort, consider Global Volunteer Month as your sign to kick it up a notch. Sign up to lead an effort at your favorite organization, from volunteering to fundraisers. This could include managing a crew of your own, or simply heading a new project for the organization that needs an experienced volunteer.
