It’s the New Year, and everyone is making resolutions. For many people volunteering is on their list of things to do in 2022. Volunteering has many benefits, but it also requires commitment. Believe in Me takes volunteering seriously and offers volunteer opportunities that are meaningful for people who want to make a difference.
Believe in Me is a nationwide volunteer organization with a mission to make volunteering easy and accessible for everyone. We offer remote volunteering opportunities all over the country, and our volunteers have made a difference in so many ways. Our website makes it simple for people to find volunteering opportunities that match their skills and interests.
Reasons to Volunteer
Giving back to the community is one of the most common reasons people volunteer. People want to help others in their time of need, and volunteering provides an opportunity for people to do just that. In some cases, volunteering is the only way for people to get involved in their community. So if you care about kids who have been dealt a bad hand of cards, you’re in the right place with Believe in Me. We’re here to show kids that someone believes in them!
Using Your Volunteer Experience to Network
Volunteering can also be a great way to network and meet new people. When people volunteer they often meet other people who share their interests and values. These relationships can be valuable, and volunteering provides an opportunity for people to build them. At Believe in Me, we have volunteers spanning across all business disciplines at Fortune 500 companies. Getting involved as a volunteer with us gives you opportunities to meet and mingle with these talented people.
Build Your Repertoire
Another reason people volunteer is to develop new skills or improve existing ones. Believe in Me offers many opportunities for volunteers to use their skills and learn new ones. From digital advertising to financial analysis and office administration, we have volunteer roles to help you develop and build your professional skill set. For example, our website development volunteering opportunities allow people to hone their coding skills while volunteering for a good cause.
People volunteer for many reasons, but no matter what your reasoning is it’s important that volunteering fits into your schedule and lifestyle. Volunteering should be meaningful not just in the moment, but also long term. If you’re going to make volunteering a priority in your life, make sure that the volunteering opportunity you choose is a good fit for you. At Believe in Me, we provide anonymity for many of our volunteers to work on projects at their own pace and on their own schedule. This flexibility allows them to volunteer while holding down a job and caring for their families. We also understand that sometimes life happens, so we allow our volunteers to put their position on hold while life settles down.
If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution that will have a lasting impact, volunteering with Believe in Me is a great way to make a difference. We offer many opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds, so everyone can find a volunteering opportunity that matches their interests and skills.
