As a medical doctor who has served with numerous organizations to bring healthcare to those who need it the most, she is dedicated to helping people from all walks of life find volunteer opportunities that will benefit everyone involved, such as the following:
Volunteering with your local church is one way to begin donating your time if you don’t know exactly where to get started. Many churches will have food banks, holiday events, food drives, construction endeavors, mission trips, and many more activities that you will be able to choose from.
Schools are always in need of passionate volunteers. If you love spending time with children or simply enjoy being in the classroom, teachers are looking for dedicated people to bring new skill sets and thought processes that they can expose to their students. You may even consider volunteering with an organization that specifically partners with schools so that you can take part in the provided programming.
If you have the desire to make an impact on a one-to-one basis, consider volunteering with a mentorship program that pairs adults with children in need of another adult who takes an interest in their lives and provides extra support that so many young people need.
