A case for skills based volunteering

  • Recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations
  • Contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.
  1. You’ll hone your skills and gain experience
  1. Make a list of skills you want to have or ones you want to improve
  2. Make a list the skills required in a job that you are interested in
  3. Compare all three lists and identify overlaps and gaps between the three
  4. Identify an existing volunteering activity or create one for your self for acquisition or development of those skills critical to the job you are interested in
  1. Think skillsets and not titles — think beyond the title of your current job by breaking down its skillsets
  2. Determine where and how you can add value to an organization or project
  3. Join a service based organization like Rotatory
  4. Have fun with the activity or activities that you choose to do
