Giving Freely

Volunteer your time at organizations around the country

Time doesn’t have to mean money when volunteering. For instance, you can cultivate more of your cultural side through Business Volunteers for the Arts (www.artsand business.org). The organization needs volunteers to consult with dance, music, and other nonprofit arts outlets on a variety of business issues.

Help others gain confidence in their communication abilities as a literacy volunteer. Affiliates of Pro Literacy Worldwide (www.proliteracy.org) provide 18 to 21 hours of training for tutors to aid those who speak English as a second language.

Little Brothers -Friends of the Elderly (www.littlebrothers.org) offers several volunteer options to help advance the group’s commitment to treating older persons with respect, compassion, and dignity.
