How to Create a Higher-Impact Volunteer Experience

  • Explore your passions and determine what you want before you move
    into action. 
  • Look for opportunities to increase the level and impact of what you are doing where you currently volunteer.
  • Develop a project idea and propose it to an organization. Research the organization to be sure your idea fits with the organization’s strategic goals.
  • Plan a presentation of the project that shows its impact on mission.
  • Present your skills to lead the project.
  • If the project involves costs, bring ideas about how you can help raise the funds.
  • Be ready to adapt your ideas.
  • Don’t be discouraged if the organization does not immediately say yes. Strategize about how to help staff better understand or seek another organization that might be a better fit.
