Four Easy Tips on Corporate Team Volunteering
- Think about why your company wants to volunteer
Are you volunteering to meet people, to get that good feeling from helping others, or
because there is a corporate initiative? Giving some thought to your own motives for
volunteering will make the experience more enjoyable. There are no right or wrong answers
here; instead it is an exercise to help you get the most out of the experience.
- Consider volunteer opportunities beyond the usual causes.
Many community groups are looking for volunteers, and some may not have occurred to your
company. Most of us know that hospitals, libraries and churches use volunteers, but what
about public schools, retirement centers and neighborhood parks? Agencies even accept
volunteers to help plan and organize their events.
- Combine your goals
With so many volunteer opportunities available for corporate team volunteering, business
objectives and personal goals can be linked to fulfill the needs of nonprofit agencies.
- Great volunteers are open to a new experience. Your volunteer work may not be
exactly what you expected, but it will certainly be an opportunity to learn. Be open to
the clients and agencies you are serving and learn from them. No matter what you give,
what youll get back is immeasurable.
