7 Websites to Help You Get Involved in Your Community ...


It's always a wonderful thing to give back and get involved in your community. But if you're wondering how you can get started, here's guest contributor Marie Tissa with a list of websites that can help!

Since I was young, I have always been involved in community service in one form or another. I find that not only do I get to help others, but itโ€™s a great way for me to feel better about myself as well. Whenever I am able to do something to help make someoneโ€™s life better, I always feel as if Iโ€™ve done some good to make the world slightly better. Itโ€™s also a great way to remind me to be grateful for all that I have, and to show my thanks by giving to those who are in need. Here are some sites that I have found that are very helpful in finding ways to volunteer in your community.

1. Idealist.org

I love Idealist! I first came across this site when a friend who works for a non-profit recommended it for job searches. Not only do they post jobs from non-profit organizations, but they also include search engines for internships and volunteer opportunities. They make it easy to search for the type of position that you are looking for, and where you can find it. It's one central location for organizations to post opportunities, and for volunteers to search for opportunities, enables people to get involved and make a change.
