Volunteering is a great way you can raise your awareness during the US National Pollution Prevention week. Can we honestly ask others to make changes if we are not working ourselves? It’s not always easy to volunteer but there are many different levels and degrees of involvement one can take.
In three easy steps you can find the most fulfilling volunteering opportunity for you:
- The best way to start is by deciding how much of your time you would like to donate.
- Next, make an inventory of your skills: What can I do? What do I enjoy doing? How can my time be used most effectively?
- Finally, research, ask your friends and neighbors about opportunities; whether, it’s in a neighborhood school, helping in the park, or developing a curriculum, or perhaps in an organization in your area.
Finally, ENJOY! Volunteering can be rewarding and invigorating, giving you energy for the rest of your tasks during the week.
