Finding a Volunteer Opportunity
You decided that you want to volunteer. You know about how much time you can commit, you know you want to help the community, maybe you want to learn a new skill. Now it’s time to find the perfect opportunity for you.
So where should you start?
Finding a volunteer opportunity can be overwhelming. The Volunteer Center partners with over 100 agencies in Story County. Besides choosing an agency you have to decide what you want to do as a volunteer. Volunteers cook, read, mentor, organize, garden and that’s just naming a few things volunteers can do here in Story County.
Lucky for you, there’s the Volunteer Center of Story County. You can give us a call and we can recommend agencies you might be interested in, or you can go to our website and click the green volunteer button. That will take you to Volunteer Solutions; an online database of volunteer opportunities and agencies in Story County. You can search by keyword, zip code, date or alphabetical order.
You can read about each volunteer opportunity and check out the agency listing to learn more information. With a click of a button you can send an email to an agency telling them that you are interested. If you create an account you can also keep track of the hours you spend volunteering.
The Volunteer Center wants to makes it as easy as possible for volunteers to get connected with agencies so they can work together to make our community the best it can be.
