I am ashamed to admit that I had done very little volunteer work in my life. I think this is because I tend to be relatively shy in person (and I think this gets worse and worse the older I get). When I think of volunteering I think of something that is outside of my comfort zone and I am someone that prefers to not be outside of my comfort zone.
However, obviously with this class there’s not much of a way around it. And frankly, I’m a little appalled with myself for not doing more volunteer work, especially since I don’t have a job right now.
The thing is, I’m not sure how to go about figuring out HOW to volunteer. The only times I’ve ever volunteered before, choices were presented to me and I just picked one and was told where and when to go. I’ve never had to go out for myself and find the volunteer work.
So, my question for all of you is this: if you volunteer, how did you go about finding out how to volunteer? And for someone that’s a little shy, like me, what do you suggest for volunteer work?
Hopefully you all can help me out! Because I am just a smidge nervous!
